Appian Cloud BPM Platform Leverages New Amazon Web Services Region

RESTON, Va.—October 23, 2014—Appian, the market leader in Platform-as-a-Service business process management (BPM) software, today extended its European presence through localized hosting for its Appian Cloud customers in Germany. Through Appian’s strong partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the company can now provide multiple hosting options for German organizations utilizing the Appian BPM Suite to grow revenue, increase customer engagement, support Governance, Risk and Compliance initiatives and create a faster, more nimble enterprise. Today’s news follows the August 2013 opening of Appian’s German office and direct “on the ground” presence in the country.

Appian is the driving force for innovation in BPM. In addition to industry-leading capabilities in native mobile apps, enterprise data navigation, and social collaboration, Appian provides a unique Portable Cloud architecture enabling deployment and full-feature use on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid environments. Deployed Appian applications can also be easily ported from one environment to another.

Appian’s Frankfurt, Germany regional office reports to Appian Europe Limited, Appian’s regional headquarters based in London. Appian Europe has experienced tremendous growth since its establishment in 2007. Appian’s direct presence in Germany has allowed dedicated resources to focus on supporting enterprise-wide BPM programs with current customers in the country, while also bringing the benefits of the Appian platform to new and thriving businesses throughout the region.

Appian Cloud is acknowledged by industry analysts as the leading platform for BPM Platform-as-a-Service. Hundreds of commercial and government organizations around the world use Appian for full run-time process execution (not merely process modeling or development) in the cloud. Appian’s modern BPM-based Work Platform provides a single environment for accelerating smarter decisions and actions across the enterprise. This speed and intelligence is derived from Appian’s native mobile accessibility through all major mobile devices (and via web browser), its intuitive social interface requiring little or no training, and complete enterprise data navigation through Appian Records. Appian’s visual “drag and drop” application composition empowers business users to drive innovation of core internal and customer-facing processes.

Dirk Pohla, Managing Director of Operations for Appian’s German office, said, “Appian enables rapid business transformation by tightly integrating the disruptive forces impacting IT today, and putting them in the context of the people, data and processes that drive a business. Our local support for the AWS German Region makes it easier than ever for German organizations to tap the power of our Work Platform.”
