RESTON, Va., Sept. 27, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Appian (NASDAQ:APPN), a leading Low-Code and Business Process Management platform provider, today announced that organizations can now deploy its digital transformation platform on Microsoft Azure IaaS. This combination of technologies brings Appian’s powerful process management and fast low-code development to Azure’s Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), allowing customers to benefit from Appian and Azure in their digital business transformation initiatives. In addition, this extends the deployment options currently provided to Appian customers, helping them build an environment that best suits their security, regulatory, and compliance needs.
Appian customers have complete control over the platform scaling using Azure’s native cloud architecture. Appian has made a comprehensive deployment design guide for deploying Appian on Azure available on the Appian Community at https://community.appian.com.
“We are focused on providing our customers with the flexibility to deploy the Appian platform in environments that work best for their needs,” said Malcolm Ross, VP of Product, Appian. “As a leader in low-code and business process management, our clients select us because building custom applications is intuitive and easy in our platform. We’ve seen demand from our customers to leverage the platform within Microsoft Azure, their preferred IaaS solution, making Appian on Azure a natural choice.”
Andrea Carl, director, Commercial Communications, Microsoft Corp. said, “We are pleased to see Appian benefit from the global scale and breadth of cloud services of Microsoft Azure. Azure, combined with Appian’s expertise in process management and development, supports our mutual customers as they migrate workflows to the cloud.”
This expansion also benefits Appian’s global partner ecosystem. Now strategic partners, such as KPMG, can provide the Appian digital transformation platform to customers deploying on Azure – further extending options for clients worldwide.
“Given the strength of our alliances with both Appian and Microsoft, this enhanced relationship will provide a powerful digital transformation platform well-suited for solving our client’s business problems,” said Jerry Iacouzzi, Advisory principal, KPMG. “Effective strategies for cloud migrations are top of mind for CIOs, and the combination of KPMG and Appian’s expanded deployment capabilities on Microsoft Azure will allow us to support clients across the globe as they quickly – and securely – create new innovative solutions for their business in the cloud.”
