KPMG and Appian Launch Strategic Alliance to Deliver Innovative Business Applications


 KPMG LLP, the U.S. audit, tax and advisory firm, and Appian, the leading provider of Business Process Management (BPM)-based Application Platforms, today jointly announced at Appian World 2015 an alliance that will help clients automate their business processes and harness the power of disruptive technologies -- mobility, enterprise data/analytics, cloud computing, and social collaboration -- to gain a competitive advantage in their marketplace.

A recent Appian survey illustrated the need for business applications that are easily configurable and customizable to respond faster to business and customer needs. Eighty-seven percent of respondents said that custom software is driving innovation in business software, with 72 percent stating that traditional development solutions are too slow to keep pace with business demand. In addition, 90 percent believe a new market is emerging for modern cloud-based application platforms that dramatically reduce the time and cost required to build, deploy, and maintain custom software solutions.

"IT and business teams faced with the urgent need to innovate, while optimizing processes and reducing costs, are increasingly turning to BPM solutions to increase their speed of delivery," says Jerry Iacouzzi, Advisory principal, KPMG. "With Appian, we're designing and implementing future-state technology programs for our clients to address these key business issues quickly and efficiently."

The strategic alliance combines Appian's modern application platform with KPMG's business insights and extensive BPM program delivery qualifications. KPMG and Appian's combined capabilities help clients transform current operational processes, boost efficiency, mitigate risk, provide end-to-end visibility, and comply with regulations.

Joe Kozak, vice president, Global Alliances and Partners at Appian, said, "KPMG is a strategic partner in delivering exceptional value to customers in record time across industry verticals all around the globe."

KPMG LLP, the audit, tax and advisory firm (, is the U.S. member firm of KPMG International Cooperative ("KPMG International"). KPMG International's member firms have 162,000 professionals, including more than 9,000 partners, in 155 countries.
