Participation in Advisory Boards and Program Sponsorships a “Win-Win” for BPM Software Leader
Reston, Va.— September 18, 2013 —Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) software, is helping mentor the enterprise software innovators of the future. Through participation in a variety of higher education and high school department advisory boards and program sponsorships, Appian provides guidance and counsel to the students of today who will develop and commercialize the technologies that will change the world of tomorrow.
Appian Chief Technology Officer Michael Beckley calls these programs a “win-win” for the students and for Appian. He says: “The future of innovative enterprise software is sitting in high school, undergraduate and graduate classes right now. We feel a responsibility to aid the education of these students, and to help them understand how their passion for technology can create meaningful and prosperous careers for them and a better world for all of us. At the same time, it is a chance for these students to be exposed to Appian and our unique culture of innovation. If they like what they see, it increases the chances that they will want to apply their talents within our organization post-graduation.”
In addition to his duties as CTO, Mr. Beckley also leads Appian’s recruiting efforts – an unusual dual-responsibility, but one that he says makes perfect sense for a company like Appian. “We founded Appian on the premise that culture is everything. It determines a company’s ability to constantly re-invent what is possible in its market. We sell the Appian BPM Suite, but ultimately our product is the engineers and services professionals who make it possible for our platform to change how organizations work.”
