BPM software has 'nowhere to go' – says leading BPM software company


"'I don't even use the phrase BPM any more,' says Appian CEO Matt Calkins. This might sound like an odd statement coming from the head of a company whose business process management (BPM) software has for many years featured in the top right quartile of Gartner's BPM Suites Magic Quadrant, along with rivals such as IBM, Pegasystems and Lombardi.

What he means is that in a world defined by cloud, mobility, social media and interconnectivity, simplicity and flexibility are now essential features of enterprise software, just as they are with consumer-oriented programmes. Packaged BPM software and its supportive ecosystem of expert users has become limited and restrictive and needs a radical overhaul, he explains.

‘It would be foolish to disown it, but in my opinion the market is now much greater than BPM itself,’ he states.

Instead of packaged software, Calkins argues, the future of the market lies in custom applications, with organisations developing their own solutions to solve their own very specific problems.”
