RESTON, VA: Appian, a provider of Business Process Management (BPM) based application platform, and Zoomdata, developer of fast visual analytics solution for Big Data, announce a strategic technology integration and business partnership.

Through the integration of Appian and Zoomdata platforms, Appian’s powerful business process engine will receive a larger influx of data which along with Zoomdata’s advanced Big Data business intelligence and visual analytics will help it blend in to provide a seamless user experience while driving rapid business action from real-time data.

“Bringing Zoomdata’s cutting-edge BI and visual analytics capabilities to Appian enhances the process intelligence our platform can deliver to customers in areas like insurance fraud detection, financial services anti-money laundering, retail cross-sell/up-sell, and other Big Data use cases,” says Malcolm Ross, Vice President of Product at Appian.

Appian’s BPM engine turns the intelligence gleaned from Zoomdata into instant business actions that can be initiated and monitored from desktop and mobile devices. The measurable results from the integration will include faster insights, smarter decisions, and a more agile and responsive business.

“Today’s global organizations are challenged to take advantage of real-time data from the new class of Big Data stores and streaming architectures within their business processes,” adds Justin Langseth, CEO and Founder at Zoomdata.

Appian is able to provide both detailed analytics and flexible reporting options across all process and business data that flows through its platform. Industries dealing with massive structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data are able to leverage information from Zoomdata. Furthermore they also have access to fast and easy ways to decipher patterns, correlations, market trends, customer preferences and other useful business data.

Zoomdata delivers Big Data into compelling visual views within seconds, by leveraging from both historical and real-time data across both legacy and modern data stores. The company’s powerful micro-query architecture helps in delivery of immediate results to users, while its unique data sharpening technology is capable of providing instant visualization of those results.

It then continuously updates the visualization through stream processing of additional micro-queries until the data fully sharpens. As Zoomdata has a stream processing engine at its core, it can seamlessly analyze real-time as well as historical data.

The integration will use Appian’s SAIL technology for responsive user interfaces, by embedding it directly in Zoomdata’s interface for seamless and consistent experience for customers of both companies. The Appian platform will integrate business process, data management, enterprise mobility, social collaboration, and flexible on-premise/cloud hosting to accelerate the creation, delivery, and adoption of powerful enterprise applications.
