RESTON, Va. — July 20, 2017 — Appian, (NASDAQ: APPN), a leading global provider of low-code application development and BPM software, today announced the addition of Blue Prism’s industry leading Robotic Process Automation (RPA) capabilities to its platform. The new product offering, Appian RPA with Blue Prism, brings together leading low-code application development, BPM, and robotic workforce software for the first time as an offering from a single vendor. This offering builds on an already well-established partnership while giving organizations a one-stop-shop for all their enterprise automation needs, especially those that require the highest levels of auditing, security and scalability.
