Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) software, today announced the strongest 3rd-Quarter performance in company history. Q3 2013 sales orders hit an all-time Q3 high, and total software revenue grew 31 percent over Q3 2012. In addition to on-premise deployments, Appian's cloud business continued to grow dramatically, with Appian Cloud revenue increasing 70 percent over Q3 2012. To-date, Appian has signed 50 new customers in 2013.
"Appian's third quarter success, and our history of accelerated growth, is the result of our commitment to delivering the world's most innovative work platform," said
While Appian's U.S. performance was strong, the company's international business expanded substantially as well. Through
To support this expansion, Appian is aggressively hiring throughout its global operations. So far in 2013, Appian has hired 97 new employees across virtually all departments, from Sales, Professional Services, and Engineering to Marketing, Training, Human Resources and more. Appian's 2013 goal is to hire 120 new employees.
Appian's success was largely driven by the growth of its cloud business, with roughly 40 percent of new software customers choosing cloud deployment. Appian's unique Portable Cloud architecture delivers all the cost and speed benefits of cloud computing, while reducing cloud risk by enabling easy migration between cloud and on-premise deployment models.
New Appian customers in 2013 represent a broad range of markets. The company saw continued growth in traditionally-strong BPM markets such as Financial Services, Insurance, and Government, while also gaining significant traction in emerging BPM markets including Retail, Pharmaceuticals, Transportation and Logistics, Healthcare, and Energy/Utilities.
Customers in all of these markets chose Appian based on its ability to harness the major IT disruptions of enterprise mobility, social collaboration, cloud computing and enterprise data navigation. By tying those disruptors directly to the business processes that drive an organization, Appian allows customers to turn IT disruption into real business value.
Appian is established as the driving force for innovation in BPM software, continuing to push the boundaries of BPM's value through "write once, deploy everywhere" native mobility, social collaboration, and more. While its competition struggles to catch up, the company further extended its leadership position in Q3 with the release of its Appian Records functionality. With Appian Records, Appian became the first and only vendor in the industry to solve the business performance and visibility problems created by siloed sets of enterprise data. The result is faster and smarter actions by customer-facing employees, increased collaboration and productivity across the organization, and holistic visibility into the overall health of the business for executives. With Appian Records, the company once again expanded the boundaries of BPM, as it has done previously by deeply-integrating social and mobile capabilities to drive participation in more effective business processes, and faster, more informed business decisions.
