January 10, 2018

Lifting the Curtain on the Era of Low-Code, Appian’s Digital Transformation Platform is Transforming Work and the Customer Experience

RESTON, Va. — Appian (NASDAQ: APPN), a leading Low-Code and Business Process Management platform provider, today announced it received the 2017 ‘Tech Company of the Year (over $50m in revenue)’ Award from the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC). The award celebrates Appian’s industry leadership and innovative digital transformation platform technology. Headquartered in Northern Virginia, Appian was founded in the region and became the country’s best performing enterprise software IPO in 2017, according to Renaissance Capital.

“As a longtime member and supporter of NVTC I’m especially pleased with this recognition,” said Matt Calkins, CEO, Appian.

Appian makes it easy for every company to create the software applications it needs to express itself and its uniqueness in the market. In doing this, customers such as Barclays, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, and many others across the globe are able to streamline operations, cultivate stronger relationships with customers, and better assert the uniqueness of their brand.

According to a recent IDC Worldwide Digital Transformation Predictions report, digital transformation spending will reach $1.7 trillion worldwide by 2019, a 42 percent increase from 2017.

Kevin Spurway, SVP of Marketing, adds, “Being named Company of the Year by the NVTC was the capstone of a very exciting 2017 for Appian. As we step into 2018, we believe both Appian and the Northern Virginia technology community are poised for even greater growth and success.”
