RESTON, VA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Appian, a leading BPM and Case Management platform provider, congratulates its 2016 Regional Partners of the Year and App Market Award winners. Appian's Regional Partner of the Year Awards recognize the organizations that have turned significant investment in the development of an Appian practice into the highest value implementations for customers. The awards also consider a partner's A-Scores, which are a numerical evaluation of individuals within Appian partner organizations used to help customers identify the resources best-suited to assist with an Appian project or program. The App Market Awards recognize the most innovative and effective partner-contributed solutions and components in the Appian App Market. The App Market is an online source for pre-built business solutions on the Appian platform, as well as tools and extensions to help build any application faster.
