Responding quickly to change—whether caused by a virus, new laws, updated regulations, or an incoming administration—is the biggest challenge facing state and local governments.

Digital transformation technologies—including data and analytics, AI, machine learning, cloud computing, virtual assistants, and robotic process automation—offer governments new ways to act on data, improve citizen experience, reduce costs, and modernize the back office. However, implementing these technologies is a challenge, especially when critical, legacy enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems power important services that cannot be interrupted.

Appian and KPMG LLP (KPMG) work together to deliver the technology and strategy for improving government agility and outcomes. Appian’s low- code automation platform offers a fast, powerful way to modernize and transform mission-critical applications. When broadly implemented by KPMG within its framework of leading practices, low-code development can unify the IT environment and connect transformative technologies to legacy systems.

The alliance between Appian and KPMG can help state and local governments meet that expectation. Appian’s low-code automation platform lets you deploy mission-critical applications faster and without coding. With experience from strategy to execution, KPMG provides the framework and leading practices to help you mitigate risk, navigate policy and security concerns, and achieve results with low-code applications. With KPMG and Appian, you can build the capabilities to respond swiftly to legislative, regulatory, and policy changes.
