- Historically speaking, this partnership is unexpected. Rarely do we see BPM providers put such an emphasis on communications technology. However, both Appian and Twillio’s strong emotional footprints, with +94 and +91 respectively, indicate that they have a focus on ease of use for end-users. Appian’s low-code development platform for BPM puts significant emphasis on user friendliness and low user-ramp up times, which meshes well with Twillio’s focus on easy-to-use APIs for adding voice, video, and messaging capabilities to applications.
- It is a boon to have a communication’s technology providers like Twilio included in the license, for organizations looking to add BPM technology to their contact centers.
