RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 18, 2015 -- Appian, provider of the leading application platform for business process management (BPM) and Case Management, today announced that it has been named a Leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in the independent analyst firm's "The Forrester Wave™: BPM Platforms For Digital Business, Q4 2015" report. Forrester's 31-criteria evaluation of business process management vendors identified the 12 most significant software providers in the industry.

The report focuses on the BPM's role in supporting the shift to digital business, and how enterprise architects are investing in BPM to:

  • Deliver rapid customer-centric innovation

  • Quickly adapt processes to support new digital strategies

  • Extend beyond the back-office and the company boundaries.

As summarized in the report:
"Appian is focused on the rapid delivery of both process-centric and data/case-centric applications. In 2010, Appian was the first BPM software vendor to introduce social and mobile functionality as foundational components for its BPM platform. These components allowed customers to engage and collaborate around work tasks in new ways and opened up new use cases and scenarios for deploying BPM for field workers. New capabilities focus on case management, data virtualization, responsive design, and application performance tuning. Appian provides a web-based process modeling, development, and execution environment that is available both on-premises and in the cloud."

Appian's combination of power and simplicity enables the fastest time-to-market in the BPM industry, and its support for modern Agile and Continuous methodologies makes adapting to change easy. This makes Appian the ideal platform for the fast "testing and learning" cycles required to drive rapid and successful innovation.
