Financial Services and Insurance Professionals Share Insights on the Transformation within their Organizations

With just a little more than a month before Appian World, the excitement is growing. The conference will bring together organizations from around the globe, including many financial services and insurance leaders. The one thing that all of their businesses have in common is CHANGE.

We think about change a lot at Appian and we understand that it's not a destination, it's an ongoing journey. We understand that change can create pressure on business and IT. Appian's low-code software is the perfect platform for enabling companies to quickly respond to industry changes. We empower our customers to be change agents.

In Financial Services and Insurance (FS&I), change can be complex and difficult. At Appian, we're doing our best to change that.

FS&I companies are seeking a digital transformation strategy that is agile, innovative and adaptable without compromise. Companies are discovering the benefits of a low-code application platformapproach that allows them to quickly execute enhancement and change initiatives that realize tangible, documentable ROI.

Appian World 2018 is the perfect place to learn more about how new technologies like AI (Artificial Intelligence), ML (Machine Learning), and RPA (Robotic Process Automation) can take your company to the next level. You'll have the opportunity to arrange one-on-one sessions with Appian experts and participate in hands-on product training. You'll learn about new technologies that will enable you to better engage with your customers and respond to regulatory demands. And you will do it all while connecting with industry peers who are facing the same strategic challenges.
