The biggest thing I took away from Appian World 2014 (other than Shark Tank's Robert Herjavec, of course) was the amount of industries represented at our annual user group event. And more than just representation, it was intriguing to learn how aspects of modern BPM can be implemented for so many different purposes.
Whether it's using native mobile applications to allow terminal managers to better serve customers at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, or financial analysts offering quicker investment insights and reduce risk through easy access to data and records at Janus Capital Group, BPM's role in creating a better way to work has no boundaries.
As part of Appian's on-going video series, Appian Vice President of Product Marketing Malcolm Ross provided ashort overviewabout how different industries use modern BPM tools to handle process solutions that cover a wide variety of operations. Elements of mobile, data and social collaboration can be enforced in a number of ways, but can all be harnessed to create the most efficient workflow for whatever your business may be.
Almost every major industry has a play in Enterprise IT. Here are just a few where Appian is helping to transform business operations:
Financial Services: Financial services firms must be more responsive to customer requests, identify incremental sales opportunities, get assets on-board faster, and comply with new regulations without overburdening staff and internal processes. All of these efforts require better IT systems. Today, financial services solutions are being modernized with enterprise software for processes including new client and asset on-boarding, loan origination, regulatory compliance, and new product introduction.
Pharmaceuticals:Life science companies operate in an increasingly complex regulatory and business environment. The drug development process and corresponding legal demand for documentation is a long running process requiring significant attention to detail.BPM software is simplifying the way life science companies create IT applications, allowing them to deliver immediate value to business users in areas related to drug safety and pharmacovigilance, regulatory compliance, and clinical trials.
Insurance:From processing applications to underwriting and claims management, BPM makes insurance providers more competitive. Insurance carriers on the front lines of innovation have adopted a mobile-first strategy to achieve competitive advantage through operational efficiencies, high level customer service, and measurable business growth.
