Quote from Samir Gulati, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing at Appian 

"This year's Appian World theme was 'Realize your vision', creating and enabling new ways to highlight organizations' key differentiators. Persistent Systems' Franchise Management Suite app was a perfect example of this digital transformation, bringing a rich feature set to the mobile device. As digital transformation takes hold across major organizations we regard our partnership with Persistent critical in showing the power of our platform."

Recently, the two companies celebrated the 1-year anniversary of the Appian Center of Excellence at Persistent's development center in Columbus, OH. They held a customer-focused hackathon demonstrating how they work together, in this case bringing together Appian's Adopt Now program - a unique implementation approach to jumpstart new Appian solution areas by accelerating a first production release - with the 'Persistent Way', an innovative, agile implementation approach focusing on quickly releasing technology solutions to production.

Quote from Sudhir Kulkarni, President of Digital at Persistent Systems 

"By now, the 'why' of digital should be obvious; it's the 'how' that will separate winners and losers. Working closely with Appian allows us to bring together complex data sources, for a strong data platform for decision making, combined with easy to use interfaces for the best possible customer experience. As with the FSS application, we were able to provide a whole new level of franchisee interaction to help drive business."
