New book, with Foreword by Garry Kasparov, collects expert perspectives on low-code development and the future of business process automation
McLean, VA – Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) today announced the publication of HYPERAUTOMATION. The book is a collection of original essays from influential technology and business experts examining different aspects of low-code development in the enterprise, and the impact of low-code on the future of business process automation. HYPERAUTOMATION is available through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and other major retailers, as well as through appian.com/resources/misc/hyperautomation-book-form.html.
HYPERAUTOMATION features a Foreword by legendary chess grandmaster, former World Chess Champion, writer, and political activist Garry Kasparov. Mr. Kasparov discusses how his views on how the human/machine connection have evolved from his historic battles with Deep Blue to today. He states in his Foreword:
“The human mind is an unmatched analogy engine, able to apply experience and new information to new circumstances almost instantly. Machines can’t do this themselves—not yet—but with our guidance, they can help feed our insatiable appetite for ever-greater agility.”
The book also features an Introduction from Appian CEO Matt Calkins that sets the context for the chapters to follow. Mr. Calkins highlights the urgency of the lessons found in HYPERAUTOMATION, writing:
“COVID-19 set the spark for the next phase of the enterprise software revolution. In the pandemic, business realized that change was a matter of survival.”
