Appian BPM Training

What is BPM (Business Process Management)?

As the market leader in modern Business Process Management (BPM) and Case Management software, Appian delivers an application platform that unites users with everything they need to do their jobs better – all the data, all the processes, all the documents and all the collaborations – in one environment, on any device.

The Aim of this course

Appian BPM - Essentials training course provides a basic product introduction to Appian BPM. Using the Appian Client software, you will build an end-to-end mapping application that includes process maps for all the major functions of Nimbus. You will take your application through the approval process and prepare your application to ensure enduser success.

BPM methodology can generally be implemented in the following steps

Analysis: Comprehensive analysis is done to discover and identify processes that can be created or optimized to meet business requirements or improve performance. Specifications for a design solution can be derived from this analysis.
Design: The design of a process involves workflows that include human-to-human, system-to-system, or human-to-system interactions. The design should aim to reduce errors and maintain relevant standard operating procedures or service level agreements.
Modeling: Once the process design is ready, it can be modeled using varying input values to observe its behavior. If undesirable behavior is observed, design changes can be made iteratively. Software tools are available to effectively model and evaluate processes.
Execution: A process model can be executed using a business rules engine to govern process execution.
Monitoring: During execution, processes can be monitored to collect reporting data for performance, errors, and compliance. Monitoring allows businesses to evaluate executed BPM solutions against corresponding design models and against relevant KPIs. Data collected by real-time or ad-hoc monitoring can also be used by predictive analytics software to anticipate future problems.
Optimization: Data from the modeling and monitoring phases can be used to identify areas of the solution that can be improved to derive higher efficiency and better value.
