Appian Launches Social Play

February 16, 2011 No Comments

Appian, probably best known as a pure play BPM vendor has tossed its hat in the social ring with the latest release of its BPM suite. Like TIBCO before it, Appian is taking advantage of its ability to hook into any application and then applying a social layer. Appian is using the opportunity to reinforce its mobile, social and cloud credentials while extolling the virtues of its approach to social with a solution dubbed Tempo.

I’m a fan of business process approaches to solving business problems because these are often homing on something business specific and business critical rather than taking a broad technology sweep. In that regard, Appian referenced three large customers that are looking at or planning to deploy the solution. As you might expect, all are existing users. In each case, Appian cited companies with large, highly dispersed workforces that either had difficult or no access to internal systems yet need to manage complex processes.

Archstone

Company facts: apartment management, 442 communities, 82,104 units 3,300 employees

Challenge: over 900 complex forms, highly mobile, dispersed and transient workforce, no active notification of events and deadlines

Solution: SmartPath built on Appian provides flexible handling of processes and routing with a low learning curve.
