Business Transformation Takes Center Stage at Gartner BPM Summit 2014

Business is rapidly changing, and we are forced now more than ever to keep up with fast-paced change to achieve business results and stay ahead of the competition.

There’s no way to hide from it!

In the wake of continual and fluid digital disruption, organizations must rethink their business models and transform how they will operate for the digital economy. These shifts require reinvention of core business processes in order for customers, partners and other stakeholders to experience the new digital value.

Gartner BPM Summit 2014, kicking off tomorrow in Las Vegas, Nevada (December 10-12), will provide the ultimate gathering of CIOs and industry leaders discussing the most pressing issues and trends in business transformation, workplace technologies, and reinventing processes to drive growth and innovation.

Through main stage keynotes, analyst sessions, problem-solving workshops/track sessions, and peer interaction, attendees will gain insights necessary to:

  • Learn how to reinvent processes for the digital age
  • Drive growth and innovation amid continuous technology and business disruptions
  • Demonstrate the value of process management
  • Shift investment to strategic projects that drive growth and improve the customer experience, while reducing costs and creating efficiencies

Tomorrow’s track sessions will provide a first-hand example of how the third-largest U.S. renewable energy company is using a modern application platform to transform business and achieve new levels of success. EDP Renewables North America (EDPR NA), a developer, owner, and operator of 28 wind farms based in Houston, Texas, is committed to enabling a clean energy future for the U.S.

Stephan Blasilli, Head of Process Management, Sustainability, EDPR NA, and Chris Goldsberry, Corporate Development Associate, EDPR NA, will be on-hand to deliver a presentation entitled, Driving Performance with Process Intelligence and Collaboration. During the presentation, Blasilli and Goldsberry will discuss how their company has transformed the industry-standard approach to case and process management, where EDPR NA designed the COBRA (short for “COllaBoRAtion”) system using the Appian BPM platform. EDPR NA has leveraged Appian’s comprehensive process, rules, events and analytics capabilities, combined with native mobility and social business collaboration for fast and intelligent resolution of dynamic case scenarios.

In its first 24 months of operation, COBRA captured over three hundred million dollars’ worth of ROI and created a searchable knowledge base of detailed solutions for future wind farm management, including the original case’s context, to aid decision making.

Appian is proud to serve as a premium sponsor for this event. If you are attending the Summit, be sure to stop by the exhibitor’s hall and visit our team at booth #201!

We’ll be engaged via social media channels throughout the conference, so join the conversation using the event hashtag #GartnerBPM.
