April is Business Process Management Software Education Month

April is book-ended by two very important educational events in business process management software. The month starts with the Gartner Business Process Management Summit in Maryland, and ends with Appian World 2013 in Washington, DC. With spring finally here, make April your time to commit to 30 days of re-invigorating your business process management software education.

At next week’s Gartner BPM Summit,  you’ll have ample opportunity to see how the next generation of business process management software goes beyond incremental efficiency gains and cost savings. This is the new world of intelligent business operations, and worksocial from Appian is the iBPMS platform to help you harness it. We are a Premier Sponsor of the event, so stop by our booth (Booth #207) anytime for some discussion and a demonstration.

If you want to really learn about worksocial in action, come to our customer EDP Renewables’ presentation during our Service Provider Session – Tuesday, April 2 at 3:15pm in the Gaylord’s Potomac A room.

Stephan Blasilli, of EDP, will highlight the intelligent business process aspects and worksocial collaboration features of his company’s Appian case management deployment for wind turbine issue management. This is modern business process management software doing well by doing good for green energy.

Malcolm Ross, our Vice President of Product Marketing, will follow Mr. Blasilli’s case study with a short overview of the Appian BPM Suite. Malcolm will also host a dedicated Learning Lab demonstration of the Appian platform at 5:30pm on Monday, April 1.

I hear there are some non-Appian things happening at the Gartner show, too… All in all, it should whet your appetite for a real deep-dive into all things BPM at Appian World 2013. We, our customers, and a slew of industry analysts will go beyond the theory to give you two jam-packed days of practical insights, hands-on training and proven best practices to take your business process management software program to the next level.

April is humming, and its time to shake off the winter doldrums and get excited about 2013’s new opportunities. Make April your month to increase your BPM education, open up to new possibilities, and position yourself as a business modernization guru for your organization.
