Perhaps the election year has something to do with it. Nevertheless, the US Government and the CIO Office have announced a number of initiatives to usher Federal agencies into the 21st century information age. From starting the National Dialogue on the Federal Mobility Strategy on IdeaScaleand announcing the IT Shared Services Strategy, to the US Department of the Interior choosing Google Apps for Government as part of its IT Transformation initiative, Uncle Sam is ready to embrace modern technologies like mobile, social, and cloud.

Modernizing IT infrastructures, systems, and services provides the foundation for other IT transformation projects. Reducing the number of data centers, unifying on a single email system, using cloud-based electronic forms, records, documents, and content management solutions are part of that journey. So is continuous process improvement and automation through business process management (BPM) methodologies and technologies.

From its first customer in government to now more than 35 Federal customers, Appian is no stranger to understanding specific government requirements, providing the BPM platform to meet business goals, and delivering projects on time and within budget. Furthermore, Appian is winning industry accolades as the market leader in cloud, mobile, and social BPM with innovative features and enterprise-ready capabilities that are setting the pace for other vendors to follow. Here are a few examples of how Appian is helping the US government be leaner, more efficient, and more effective:

    • U.S. Marine Corps: 9 million in first-year savings with optimized procurement processes.

    • Department of Homeland Security: Annual reporting goes from weeks to seconds with case management solution.

    • FDA:BPM-based case management supports mission of advancing public health.
