1 Deliverin Value, Security, and Speed with BPM in the Cloud BPM Software in the cloud enables strateic process improvement, reduced technoloy cost, and better alinment of IT with business oals.

2 Strateic process improvement, reduced technoloy cost and better alinment of IT with business oals are all crucial for commercial and federal oranizations today. Business Process Manaement (BPM) in the cloud achieves all three objectives, drivin new rowth opportunities and increased profit marins for the private sector, and more efficient and effective mission achievement for federal aencies. The Appian BPM Suite delivered in the cloud is a secure, scalable and reliable way to create a more nimble and adaptive oranization. Cloud BPM with Appian also supports strateic initiatives around the mobile enterprise and social business collaboration. Appian BPMS...takes full advantae of the combination of social, mobile and cloud, and leads in the number of implementation with this nexus of functionality. - MAGIC QUADRANT FOR INTELLIGENT BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT SUITE 2013 Cloud BPM Delivers Value The market for enterprise corporate software in the cloud is expandin and maturin. More customers leverae the cost, efficiency, and collaboration benefits of cloud computin. The benefits of cloud computin are proven and more than 50% of lobal 1,000 companies will utilize cloud services by the end of 2016, accordin to Gartner. While cost savins continue to be a priority, increased aility, faster time to market, hiher efficiency and productivity have emered as key motivations to move software, infrastructure, and platform to the cloud. Enterprise Software as a Service (SaaS) are dynamically scalable, virtualized, and delivered over the internet. The benefits of deployin systems throuh these mechanisms can be compellin and include: Low startup costs Fast deployment with no manual maintenance Fast return-on-investment Predictable costs durin the life of the application Appian is the first complete Business Process Manaement (BPM) Suite available as an on-demand offerin in the cloud. Appian s interated software suite combines leadin process and work automation with innovations in social collaboration, enterprise mobility, and cloud computin. Solutions built on Appian are 100% portable between on-premise and cloud computin deployment options. 2

3 Oranizations of all sizes can use Appian s BPM in the cloud to enact a secure, hih value cloud computin and mobile stratey. Appian customers across industries can create enterprise applications within a week and instantly deploy them in the Cloud and on all major mobile device platforms. Some are savin hundreds of millions per year from automatin processes in the cloud. Small and medium sized oranizations can bein realizin ROI immediately because there are no sinificant up-front investments and minimal startup costs. Larer oranizations can instantly bein process discovery and documentation, create business performance dashboards and collaborate across eoraphic boundaries to create core-functional process pilots without incurrin the typical costs and delays associated with infrastructure hardware and enterprise software license procurements. Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and solution providers can use Appian Cloud to create and deliver applications for resale in both vertical and horizontal markets. Cloud computin is the future of both commercial and federal enterprise IT. In addition to the competitive market forces drivin commercial enterprises, overnment mandates, such as the US Federal Administration s Cloud First directive, are pushin overnment aencies to the cloud. Accordin to the CIO.ov website, the Federal Government s responsibility is to achieve the sinificant cost, aility and innovation benefits of cloud computin as quickly as possible. The Government s current IT environment is characterized by low asset utilization, a framented demand for resources, duplicative systems, environments which are difficult to manae, and lon procurement lead times...cloud computin has the potential to play a major part in addressin the inefficiencies and improvin overnment service delivery. Cloud BPM Provides Security Despite sins of reater adoption and market maturity, the number one concern for cloud is security. Puttin hihly sensitive internal and customer information in the cloud hosted by service providers requires more than a leap of faith. Havin the riht security in place with a scalable architecture and reliable infrastructure are absolute requirements. As the first BPM software in the cloud, Appian has been providin secure, scalable, and reliable cloud BPM since Appian Cloud is a proven platform chosen by hundreds of customers in the commercial and overnment sectors. Cloud BPM with Appian delivers powerful benefits that exceed those of an on-premise BPM deployment. It reduces project costs by minimizin up-front capital investment in hardware and software. It increases freedom for business people to focus on improvement of their core business, while reducin the burden on scarce IT resources. It eliminates on-oin fees for software maintenance and systems operations. Because Appian s cloud BPM is built on the same code base as the on-premise Appian suite, customers can mirate their cloud and on-premise BPM deployments between environments at any time, further reducin risk. Appian Cloud BPM is also fine-tuned and automated to provision production, non-production, and disaster recovery instances in minutes for hih availability to maximize uptime uarantee and minimize risks. 24x7 system monitorin, localized hostin and IT support locations in four continents provide the ability to offer eoraphic redundancy and responsive service across eoraphies. 3

4 Global commercial leaders and overnment aencies must be assured of the security of their enterprise applications and data. Cloud BPM with Appian provides reliability and security that can be touh to match by even the best internally manaed environments. Appian is desined to meet the needs of enterprise customers with the necessary security uarantees in place, includin SAML, LDAP, Active Directory authentication, sinle sin-on, and more. APPIAN CLOUD FEATURES Reliability Security Scalability Provision production, non-production, and disaster recovery instances in minutes No additional installation or downloads Mobile apps for iphone, ipad, Android, and Blackberry 100% portability between Appian Cloud and on-premise 99.5% SLA uptime uarantee Localized hostin in the US, Europe, Latin America, Australia, and Asia 24x7 system monitorin, manaement, maintenance, backups and eoraphic redundancy 24x7 localized help desk support in US, Europe, and Australia SAML, LDAP, or Active Directory authentication and sinle sin-on SSL Encryption Dedicated VPN to your enterprise s network US Government FISMA Moderate Certification: NIST Revision 3 Controls SOC 2 Report 100% web-based Unlimited process applications Unlimited content storae Unlimited bandwidth Dedicated database instance Access to Appian Forum Community Custom URL and branded user interface and web services interation As the most trusted BPM software in Federal overnment, Appian BPM Cloud has achieved US Government s Federal Information Security Manaement Act (FISMA) Moderate authorization and accreditation with a security framework that alins to National Institute of Standards and Technoloy (NIST) controls. In addition, Appian has achieved Service Oranization Controls (SOC) 2 Report issued by the American Institute of of Certified Public Accountants. Thanks to these and other safeuards, some of the most conservative and brand-conscious companies in the world, such as Amazon, Manulife Financial, and Clayton Holdins trust Appian in the cloud. Appian BPM also offers additional security assurances for overnment aencies, includin the Department of the Treasury, Department of Education, US General Services Administration (GSA), the Defense Contract Manaement Aency, and others. Cloud BPM Enables Speed Cloud computin will become the dominant platform for enterprise application development and delivery in the near future, and the revolution has already beun. Commercial and federal oranizations are turnin to public and private clouds to create dynamically scalable, virtualized enterprise applications that are delivered as a service over the internet. The cloud approach offers low start-up costs, fast deployment 4

5 with no manual maintenance, predictable costs over an application s lifetime, and fast return on investment. One aspect of cloud computin, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), provides a cloud environment for development of custom applications. Another, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), delivers pre-built application solutions in the cloud which can be instantly deployed for immediate results. Since Appian BPM is 100% web-based, its architecture is hihly scalable in the cloud and flexible as software as a service. Appian Cloud offers unlimited process applications, rules, content storae, and bandwidth. As the number of process and case manaement software applications rows, cloud infrastructure capacity easily expands. Expand server capacity with on-demand cloud development and test services, and enjoy automatic uprades to the latest release. Instead of buyin new equipment for short-term development or tests, one can quickly add capacity in the cloud and increase business aility. In addition, cloud computin supports strateies for enterprise mobility by allowin mobile devices to offload processin and data storae requirements to a cloud infrastructure. The cloud is also a key enabler of social business collaboration, providin the elastic scalability needed to support hih volumes of sporadic or occasional users. The emerence of cloud computin, and its converence with mobile and social technoloies, is a amechanin inflection point for enterprise IT. Oranizations that fail to bein the adoption of cloud computin services will be challened to remain competitive under the ever increasin costs of manually maintainin enterprise applications, and the rowin demand for reater application accessibility and collaboration. The Appian BPM Suite is an ideal environment to et started with cloud computin. Providin all functionality throuh a simple web-browser, Appian delivers the necessary components to rapidly deploy new process-based applications that support mobility and social business while creatin opportunities for new rowth and better service. 5

6 Appian delivers everythin needed to drive better business decisions, actions and results. All the data, all the processes, all the documents and all the collaborations in one environment, on any device, throuh a simple social interface. The Appian BPM Suite is available on-premise and in the cloud, with complete portability.
