December 9, 2013
Gartner has published a new report called "MarketScope for Business Process Management Platform as a Service." The report looks at vendor offerings for BPMPaaS to assess how effectively they automate, transform andmanage processes; how "cloudy" they truly are; and how well each platform delivers on the promise of Cloud BPM to accelerateapplication development and integration. In Gartner's words, "This research reveals how thesedifferences can be a roadblock to, or an accelerator of, business innovation."
Appian is the only BPM PaaS vendor to receive a "Strong Positive" rating (the highest rating possible). According to the report:
Appian Cloud is one of the few cloud-native BPM PaaS offering full iBPMS capabilities, including an in-memory events and analytics engine that supports real-time access to and analysis of KPIs managed by Appian Cloud or sourced from external BI systems, applications and event streams.
Unlike many of its competitors, the vast majority of Appian Cloud deployments involve production systems, rather than development and test environments.
Appian Cloud is a direct model-driven application platform that is appropriate in situations where non-IT resources will be developing and evolving significant portions of the BPM solution.
