KMWorld Names Appian BPM Suite "Trend-Setting Product 2009"

Leading Business Process Management Suite Uniquely Integrates Content Management & Collaboration

RESTON, VA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/24/09 -- Appian, the global innovator in enterprise and on-demand business process management (BPM) technology, today announced that the Appian Enterprise BPM Suite has been named a 2009 "Trend-Setting Product" by KMWorld Magazine. The award will be publicized in the September issue of the publication.

"The tight economy has increased the demand for BPM technology, as organizations have looked to lower operational costs, increase efficiencies, and generally do more with less," said Hugh McKellar, KMWorld Editor-in-Chief. "Appian's BPM Suite provides a comprehensive set of capabilities for managing and improving human-centric work processes."

KMWorld's Trend-Setting Products award, now in its seventh year, is an annual listing of enterprise technology products that clearly demonstrate identifiable technology breakthroughs and deliver exceptional value. This year, more than 800 products were assessed by KMWorld's judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, line-of-business managers and technology end-users.

The Appian BPM Suite provides a complete platform for easily designing, executing, managing, and optimizing business processes. Appian's unique 100 percent Web-based architecture delivers an integrated set of process, analytics, content and collaboration capabilities through a Web browser, putting the power of BPM in the hands of business decision-makers. The Appian BPM Suite can also be delivered as Appian Anywhere, the only complete Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) BPM Suite available on-demand with low per user, per month pricing.

"Appian accelerates the value organizations receive from process improvement initiatives," said Matthew Calkins, president and CEO of Appian. "We are honored by KMWorld's recognition that Appian continues to set the industry standard for innovative, powerful, yet easy-to-use BPM technology."
