Awareness – Knowledge – Action

Increased collaboration and participation drives greater organizational awareness. A modern application must further provide visibility into all relevant data (regardless of where it resides) and collaborations to
turn that awareness into useful knowledge. There are many social platforms attempting this today. Where they fall short, however, is in the final step – enabling business action on that new knowledge directly from the same application interface.

The convergence of mobile, social, cloud and Big Data technologies (what research firm Gartner, Inc. calls the "nexus of forces") is changing how work gets done, and how IT supports the business. Work can now happen anywhere, at any time, across a multitude of devices.

Turning these new technologies into real business value requires an understanding of what differentiates truly "modern" business software. There are five qualities, identified by Michael Beckley, CTO of Appian, that enterprise software applications must exhibit in order to accelerate better decisions and actions in modern work environments.
