Appian Reports Strong 2013 Performance

86 Percent Increase in Total Software License Orders and 90 Percent Cloud License Revenue Growth Over 2012

RESTON, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) software, today announced its 2013 performance results. The company saw an 86 percent increase in total software license orders over 2012 for the Appian Suite. While Appian delivers full functionality on-premise and in the cloud, with complete portability between deployment environments, the company is increasingly trending towards being a cloud business. Appian's cloud license revenue grew 90 percent year over year, and total subscription-based license orders (cloud and on-premise term licenses) have grown at a 119 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) 2010-2013. Appian signed nearly 70 new-name customers in 2013.

"Appian customers are focused on accelerating smarter actions to grow the business and enhance the customer experience," said Matt Calkins, president and CEO of Appian. "Appian supports a new way of working through our Work Platform that delivers tight integration of data, process, mobility and social collaboration."

New Markets
Appian's expansion of the boundaries of BPM to the emerging Work Platform market drove growth on two fronts: Appian solidified its leadership position in traditional BPM markets such as Financial Services, Insurance and Government, and also attracted customers in markets new to BPM such as Retail, Pharmaceuticals, Transportation and Logistics, Healthcare, and Energy/Utilities. Many new and established Appian customers will tell their stories at the Appian World 2014 Conference (April 30-May 2 in Washington, DC). There, they will explain their use of Appian as a modern Work Platform powering core operations to accelerate business performance and customer engagement.

International Expansion
Appian's international growth in 2013 was strong. International revenues (primarily from Western Europe, Australia and Bazil) grew more than 70 percent over 2012, and contributed more than 30 percent of overall company revenues. To support this growth, Appian expanded on-the-ground staff in its EMEA regional headquarters in London (as well as in new offices in France and Germany) and in Australia (via Appian's Sydney regional headquarters and Melbourne office), while growing its partner network in Latin America and around the world. Globally, Appian added 150 new employees to the company in 2013.

Product Innovation
Appian drove BPM software innovation to new heights in 2013. With Appian 7, the company pioneered a new way to overcome data silo limitations and speed smarter decisions and actions through its Appian Records functionality. With Appian SAIL (Self-Assembling Interface Layer), the company delivered the industry's most responsive and interactive user interfaces. These innovations compliment previous Appian "market firsts" such as native mobile apps, a zero-training social interface, on-premise/cloud portability, real-time in-memory analytics and reporting, and more.

Appian has already continued to drive new BPM software innovation in 2014 with the January 2014 release of the latest version of Appian 7. In this latest release, Appian continues to advance its core features for social engagement, dynamic user interfaces for the web and mobile, integration into enterprise systems, and BPM task management. Some of the highlights include:

  • Expansion of Appian SAIL UI architecture and capabilities
  • Improved document sharing in Appian social activity stream
  • Advanced task management features
  • Expanded integration frameworks
  • Enhancements to Appian Rule authoring, security management, and plug-in development
  • Integration with Microsoft SharePoint 2013 (as an add-on module)

PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add scalable realtime functionality with minimal effort and cost.”
The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
The Internet of Everything (IoE) brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before – transforming information into knowledge and knowledge into wisdom. IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gary Hall, Chief Technology Officer, Federal Defense at Cisco Systems, will break down the core capabilities of IoT in multiple settings and expand upon IoE for bo...
With several hundred implementations of IoT-enabled solutions in the past 12 months alone, this session will focus on experience over the art of the possible. Many can only imagine the most advanced telematics platform ever deployed, supporting millions of customers, producing tens of thousands events or GBs per trip, and hundreds of TBs per month. With the ability to support a billion sensor events per second, over 30PB of warm data for analytics, and hundreds of PBs for an data analytics archive, in his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Kaskade, Vice President and General Manager, Big Data & Ana...
For years, we’ve relied too heavily on individual network functions or simplistic cloud controllers. However, they are no longer enough for today’s modern cloud data center. Businesses need a comprehensive platform architecture in order to deliver a complete networking suite for IoT environment based on OpenStack. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dhiraj Sehgal from PLUMgrid will discuss what a holistic networking solution should really entail, and how to build a complete platform that is scalable, secure, agile and automated.
We’re no longer looking to the future for the IoT wave. It’s no longer a distant dream but a reality that has arrived. It’s now time to make sure the industry is in alignment to meet the IoT growing pains – cooperate and collaborate as well as innovate. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, will examine the key ingredients to IoT success and identify solutions to challenges the industry is facing. The deep industry expertise behind this presentation will provide attendees with a leading edge view of rapidly emerging IoT oppor...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
When it comes to the Internet of Things, hooking up will get you only so far. If you want customers to commit, you need to go beyond simply connecting products. You need to use the devices themselves to transform how you engage with every customer and how you manage the entire product lifecycle. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, will show how “product relationship management” can help you leverage your connected devices and the data they generate about customer usage and product performance to deliver extremely compelling and reliabl...
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
