Appian heads into the new year on the heels of a positive 2013. The company saw an 86 percent increase in total software license orders over 2012 for the Appian Suite. Appian’s cloud license revenue grew 90 percent over the same period, and total subscription-based license orders (cloud and on-premise term licenses) have grown at a 119 percent compound annual growth rate 2010-2013. Appian signed nearly 70 new-name customers in 2013. While Appian delivers full functionality on-premise and in the cloud, with complete portability between deployment environments, the company is increasingly trending towards being a cloud business. Appian’s Business Process Management (BPM) Suite seamlessly integrates work automation with native mobile and social capabilities.
“Appian customers are focused on accelerating smarter actions to grow the business and enhance the customer experience,” said Matt Calkins, president and CEO of Appian. “Appian supports a new way of working through our Work Platform that delivers tight integration of data, process, mobility and social collaboration.”
The arrival of the latest version of Appian 7 in January 2014 brought a way to overcome data silo limitations and speed smarter decisions and actions. With Appian SAIL (Self-Assembling Interface Layer), the company delivered innovations that compliment previous Appian “market firsts” such as native mobile apps, a zero-training social interface, on-premise/cloud portability, real-time in-memory analytics and reporting, and more. The latest version also features improved document sharing and advanced task management features for increased usability.
