Appian ABM Solution
Appian’s Acquisition Business Management (ABM) Solution is an end-to-end acquisition system, covering the full federal acquisition lifecycle. Unlike other software applications for federal procurement that follow the traditional model of requiring all customers to adapt to the way their software works, Appian ABM can easily be adapted to fit the specific procurement needs related to each agency’s mission. Organizations that deploy Appian ABM for federal procurement can rest assured they will be able to easily adapt the core logic of their application as new needs emerge and conditions change. This can be done without expensive change orders and without risk of breaking off an upgrade path.
Appian ABM comes with all the business logic, rules, enterprise and IAE integrations, user interfaces, reports, and dashboards for federal acquisitions. Common contracting functionality such as acquisition plan creation, solicitation/award document generation, CLIN/SLIN creation, clause logic/library, and integrated acquisition environment integrations (FBO, CCR, EPLS, ORCA, FPDS-NG) are pre-built. FAR and DFARS compliance is assured. ABM provides a single web-based system for interaction between customers, contractors, and administrators.
Appian supports the federal government’s “cloud first” mandate with authority to operate (ATO) under the FISMA act. ABM can either be deployed in the cloud or on-premise and moved seamlessly and easily between the two. Our platform also includes built-in native mobile clients for all major platforms and a social communication interface that integrates process and system events, allowing organizations to dramatically speed processes and improve efficiency.
Many agencies already have discrete components of contracting systems that work well. Rather than having to “rip and replace” these components which would be required to implement a traditional acquisition software package, Appian’s ABM Solution can be implemented in part and easily integrated with existing components, making them full parts of an overall solution.
Agencies such as Defense Information Systems Agency, the U.S. Marine Corps, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation have achieved great success with ABM as the center of their procurement operations. More information about Appian’s ABM Solution is available on our website.
