Appian Unveils Third-Generation AJAX-Based User Interface

Business Process Mgt Suite Enables Development of Next-Gen Composite Process Apps

Appian, a leading provider of human-centric business process management suites (BPMS), has unveiled Appian Enterprise 5, providing organizations with the industry's most sophisticated platform for rapidly developing and deploying next-generation composite process applications. The latest evolution of Appian's award-winning BPM suite, Appian Enterprise 5 is the industry's only enterprise-class BPM solution to combine best-of-breed process management with broad collaboration and strong analytics functionality, effectively bringing process to people.

According to Gartner's Position on Business Process Management 2006 report, "By 2009, 20 percent of business processes of Global 2000 companies will be supported on BPMSs (0.7 probability). These processes will predominately involve a considerable amount of human work that differentiates the company from its competitors and that is poorly supported by established IT systems."

Appian Enterprise 5 is the industry's the most advanced people-centric BPM suite featuring technology enhancements that bring process to people, including unique integration to Microsoft Outlook, an enhanced, third-generation AJAX-based user interface, fully integrated document management and collaboration capabilities, powerful Analytics Everywherefunctionality, and full internationalization.

"This innovative product has the widest breadth of functionality among the suites we evaluated, by design," said Connie Moore, author of The Forrester Wave: Human-Centric Business Process Management Suites, Q1 2006, Forrester Research Inc. February 24th, 2006. "Appian endeavors to provide all the tools necessary to support all types of people-intensive processes. It delivers diverse features, including DM, team collaboration, and a rich, Web-based user environment."

"Appian pioneered the BPM suite market with the launch of Appian Enterprise 4 and we have experienced significant growth and industry recognition based on this solid platform," said Matthew Calkins, CEO of Appian Corporation. "Appian Enterprise 5 delivers the same core process, knowledge, and analytics capabilities while delivering innovative new features that empower users to engage in collaborative, process-driven work and facilitates integration and interaction with third-party systems."

Appian Enterprise 5 introduces radically enhanced process modeling capabilities with the industry's first completely BPMN-compliant, third-generation AJAX process modeler, fully supporting the industry's "common language" for process design. Featuring the most pervasive and advanced use of AJAX in any enterprise application to date, Appian delivers a dynamic, fully featured process design tool that enables users to work in a web browser with no Java plug-ins or ActiveX controls.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices.

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in this new hybrid and dynamic environment.
