Mike Beckley, co-founder and CTO of Appian,was interview recently by newscaster Morris Jones on the television program Capital Insider. The discussion centered on how BPM software is helping drive efficiency in the federal government.

Mike explained that the imperative in government is not just to trim budgets, but also to improve service. What government does is shared across agencies, whether the process is procurement, human resources, or even security processing such as background checks.

As shared services, government can work more efficiently and improve processes between agencies. BPM software models how a business works, and then enables the people doing the work to improve their processes. Mike also discussed the importance of cloud accessibility for BPM, and thetremendous valueinallowing employees to interact with business processes anywhere they may be via mobile devices. Native mobile BPM applications for iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry devices allow federal workers to collaborate and take action from any location.

With the continued federal emphasis on cloud computing, collaboration and mobility, BPM's flexibility is making a real, positive impact for a more efficient federal government.
