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.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, ...
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
All zSystem customers have a significant new business opportunity to extend their reach to new customers and markets with new applications and services, and to improve the experience of existing customers. This can be achieved by exposing existing z assets (which have been developed over time) as APIs for accessing Systems of Record, while leveraging mobile and cloud capabilities with new Systems of Engagement applications. In this session, we will explore business drivers with new Node.js apps ...
Digital Transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies. Unfortunately, application security has been an afterthought and data breaches have become a daily occurrence. Security is not one individual or one's team responsibility. Raphael Reich will introduce you to DevSecOps concepts and outline how to seamlessly interweave security principles across your software development lifecycle and application lifecycle management. With ...
Two apparently distinct movements are in the process of disrupting the world of enterprise application development: DevOps and Low-Code. DevOps is a cultural and organizational shift that empowers enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker – in particular, hand-coded software. Low-Code platforms, in contrast, provide a technology platform and visual tooling that empower enterprise software teams to deliver better software quicker -- with little or no hand-coding required. ...
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addres...
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the p...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
