Appian Makes Major Enhancements to Appian BPM Suite
August 25, 2010
Appian, a major player in enterprise and on-demand business process management (BPM) technology, has immediate availability of the latest release of the Appian BPM Suite.
Appian said that this architectural milestone extends the company’s position as the leader in BPM technology innovation.
According to company officials, the release significantly advances Appian customers' ability to create process applications that seamlessly integrate their enterprise data and scale to handle extremely large process volumes and load.
Company officials said that in this latest release, Appian breaks new ground in the seamless integration of enterprise data into process applications.
By supporting industry standards and best practices, Appian empowers business analysts and end-users to easily access and work with enterprise data sources without requiring SQL or complex coding.
"Appian conducts product development under an agile methodology of rapid iterative releases, far out-pacing any other BPM vendor's ability to quickly bring to market significant improvements in the power and ease-of-use of a BPM system," said Matthew Calkins, president and CEO of Appian, in a statement.
Calkins said that the latest release of the Appian platform demonstrates the company’s on-going commitment to driving BPM industry innovation.
Back in July Appian had announced that the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) has selected the Appian BPM Suite for process automation and improvement. Appian will provide the technology platform and consulting services to create OCC's Personnel Administration and Security System (PASS), a new enterprise system to automate on-boarding, off-boarding and security processing for all OCC employees and contractors.
This contract includes an initial award with a value of over $2.1M for the initial phase with options to more than $3.6M to be exercised.
The OCC is the agency of the U.S. Department of the Treasury that oversees the execution of laws relating to all national banks, and establishes rules and regulations governing the operations of those banks. OCC's BPM license purchase represents an investment in Appian technology and consulting services to automate and improve one of the agency's core support systems.Anil Sharma is a contributing editor for TMCnet.
