Accounting firm, KPMG, and business process management company, Appian, have partnered to help clients harness the power of disruptive technologies through the use of business apps.
The strategic alliance combines Appian's modern application platform with KPMG's business insights and 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, according to a company statement.
In a recent Appian survey 87 per cent of respondents said that custom software was driving innovation in business software, while 72 per cent said that traditional development solutions were too slow to keep pace with business demand.
In addition, 90 per cent 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.
KPMG advisory principal, Jerry Iacouzzi, said IT and business teams faced with the urgent need to innovate, while optimising processes and reducing costs, were increasingly turning to BPM solutions to increase their speed of delivery.
"With Appian, we're designing and implementing future-state technology programs for our clients to address these key business issues quickly and efficiently."
Appian vice-president, global alliances and partners, Joe Kozak, said KPMG is a strategic partner in delivering exceptional value to customers in record time across industry verticals all around the globe.
