Appian Continues Significant Growth in Q1 2010

BPM leader extends 2009 growth with 58 percent increase in customer orders over Q4 2009

Appian, a provider of enterprise and on-demand business process management (BPM) technology, has announced that Q1 2010 performance extended the strong growth the company experienced throughout 2009. The departure of two significant independent competitors through acquisition by platform vendors has solidified Appian's position as the BPM pure-play innovation leader. Appian has reaped the benefit of this market consolidation, with total customer orders growing 58 percent in a single quarter (Q1 2010 over Q4 2009). Software license orders increased 30 percent over the same period. Appian signed 17 new-name customers in Q1 2010 for on-premise and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deals across US Federal, US Commercial and international markets. Appian's growth reflects increasing global demand for the accelerated business value provided by the Appian BPM Suite.

BPM in the Cloud Gains Momentum
In addition to traditional on-premise deployments, Appian saw interest in enterprise-level Cloud-based BPM continue to rise in Q1 2010. The SaaS model attributes of low monthly subscription cost, reduced overhead investment and minimal impact on internal resources is attuned to constrained economic conditions. Appian Anywhere is the only complete on-demand BPM Suite providing the reliability, security and scalability required by large, global enterprises. This was proven in the quarter by the first large-scale Federal Government Appian Anywhere deployment. Appian is now used by more than 20 major U.S. government agencies and departments.

In addition to Government, Appian booked SaaS deals with organizations across Financial Services, Insurance, Manufacturing, Healthcare and other markets. These deals, several in the $100,000 to $500,000 range, prove that SaaS BPM is an "industrial-strength" approach to process improvement. While SaaS delivery remains an attractive way for organizations to introduce BPM through internal pilots and quick-win projects, Appian Anywhere is increasingly deployed for strategic BPM programs encompassing mission-critical processes.

While SaaS BPM delivery represents a maturing trend, traditional on-premise deployments continue to drive significant growth for Appian around the world. In addition to Appian's direct U.S. sales, Appian partners, such as Exodus in Greece, signed multiple new customer on-premise deals in the quarter.

Continuous Innovation
Appian continued to drive BPM industry technology innovation throughout Q1 2010. The company introduced a cutting-edge Process Discovery application that manages process selection and delivers a fully-functional process model and application in roughly 30 minutes. The application was unveiled during Appian's "BPM Simplified" Learning Lab sessions at the Gartner U.S. and U.K. BPM Summits.

Appian also built on its industry-leading Appian 6 platform with the Q1 2010 release of version 6.0.2. The enhanced platform extends a customer's ability to rapidly build and deploy robust process applications through expanded support for OSGi plug-ins, enhanced password management and PCI compliance, expanded support of Application Import/Export capabilities, and new usability features that enhance the developer and end-user experience.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In their Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, and Mark Lav...
"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is a common and reliable transmission protocol on the Internet. TCP was introduced in the 70s by Stanford University for US Defense to establish connectivity between distributed systems to maintain a backup of defense information. At the time, TCP was introduced to communicate amongst a selected set of devices for a smaller dataset over shorter distances. As the Internet evolved, however, the number of applications and users, and the types of data accessed and...
The Software Defined Data Center (SDDC), which enables organizations to seamlessly run in a hybrid cloud model (public + private cloud), is here to stay. IDC estimates that the software-defined networking market will be valued at $3.7 billion by 2016. Security is a key component and benefit of the SDDC, and offers an opportunity to build security 'from the ground up' and weave it into the environment from day one. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, ...
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again. Unfortunately, we've seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
Kin Lane recently wrote a couple of blogs about why copyrighting an API is not common. I couldn’t agree more that copyrighting APIs is uncommon. First of all, the API definition is just an interface (It is the implementation detail … Continue reading →
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing containers across multiple hosts in a cluster.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also included will be a brief demonstration of running a Galera MyS...
Your homes and cars can be automated and self-serviced. Why can't your storage?

Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world.
