Don’t Check Out Before You Check In for Appian World 2015

If you are like me, right around mid-November, a little bit of panic sets in about how much still needs to get done before the books can close on the year. There’s a little downtime just on the horizon, but the closer it gets, the more frantic the pace as we all try to check off our to-do lists. It’s heads-down execution time; getting things done so we can catch a little breather. But it’s also strategic planning time. We know that brief respite is the precursor to a new 12 months’ worth of opportunities and challenges.

So do something today that also sets you up for success in the future: register for Appian World 2015. It will be three days of practical how-to AND strategic vision to help you “Reinvent/Innovate/Deliver” on your company’s evolution into digital business.

Two sessions not to miss are keynote presentations from two BPM/Digital Business thought-leaders.


Janelle Hill, VP & Distinguished Analyst at Gartner Inc., will discuss the concept of “Big Change” and how organizations like yours can succeed in our world of constant volatility, novelty, and disruption. (Spoiler alert: an iBPMS platform is the place to start). Janelle is a world-renowned expert in applying process thinking to achieve excellence in business operations. Her research includes best practices in all the process disciplines and emerging Big Change techniques along with the roles/responsibilities of change agents and business transformation leaders.

Clay Richardson, Principal Analyst at Forrester Research, will explore the current and future state of employee and customer engagement in a process apps world. He will also focus on how to accelerate business performance through low-code application platforms. Clay is a leading expert on BPM software, services and methodologies. He delivers strategic guidance to professionals seeking to improve collaborative and operational business processes.

There’s lots more coming as our agenda takes shape, including free training for basic and advanced users of our BPM-driven application platform, success stories from your Appian community peers, Appian executive presentations on our company vision and product direction, networking opportunities, and a very special Customer Appreciation event.

You won’t want to miss it, so register today.

We hope to see you there!

-Ben Farrell, Director, Corporate Communications
