Reston, VA (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Appian, the global innovator in enterprise and cloud-based business process management BPM software, today announced continued growth through the first quarter of 2011. Q1 2011 was the best quarter in the company’s history, with a 202 percent increase in BPM software sales over Q1 2010. 42 percent of the quarter’s software sales were for cloud deployment of the Appian BPM Suite, demonstrating Appian’s continued leadership in Cloud BPM. Appian signed more than 20 new customers in the quarter.
New Appian BPM software customers in Q1 2011 included such well-known brands as C.R. Bard, Inc., and Husky Oil Operations, Ltd. Leading organizations selected the Appian BPM Suite for core business processes across Finance, Acquisition, Human Resources, Customer Service and other areas. Appian Cloud BPM customers continued to cite time-to-deployment, no up-front investment, and seamless migration to on-premise as their primary reasons for choosing to deploy Appian software as a service (SaaS).
BPM Innovation Leader
Appian announced the newest version of its award-winning Appian BPM Suite, and its mobile BPM and social business interface, Appian Tempo, during Q1 2011. Appian’s technology innovation continued to reflect the dominant inflection points in enterprise IT.
“In 2011, we expect to see transformative technologies make the critical transition from early adopter status to early mainstream adoption,” said Frank Gens, senior vice president and chief analyst at IDC. “As a result, we’ll see the IT industry revolving more and more around the build-out and adoption of this next dominant platform, characterized by mobility, cloud-based application and service delivery, and value-generating overlays of social business and pervasive analytics.”
The newest Appian Business Process Management software suite release drives increased business value through a focus on Mobile, Cloud and Social BPM. The platform builds on Appian’s heritage of natively-integrated process, business rules, reporting and analytics, content management, data integration and collaboration.
Delivering Value to BPM Software Customers
Appian is committed to its customers’ success, and delivers industry-leading return-on-investment. Two of Appian’s marquee customers received significant industry recognition for the success of their BPM programs and the value they have delivered to their organizations. Global IT Analysis firm Gartner, Inc. honored Appian customers UPS and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) in the Gartner, Inc. 2011 BPM Excellence Awards. In addition, UPS won the “KM Reality 2010” award for a deployment that has improved operational efficiencies, enhanced customer service excellence, and generated significant cost-savings. Late in 2010, NSN was also named winner in the Global Awards for Excellence in BPM and Workflow 2010. Appian president and CEO Matt Calkins discussed the quarter’s results April 18, 2011 at the Appian World 2011 conference.
“Appian is dedicated to BPM software innovation and delivering the highest-quality Appian Experience we can for our BPM customers,” said Mr. Calkins. “That focus on the fundamentals of value is generating excellent returns both for our customers and for Appian, and we look forward to continued growth in the future.” Large big brand and even smaller companies are rushing to Appian for its quality, reliability and flexible BPM Suite.
