Palo Alto (20 Apr 2004) – When the U.S. Army wanted to build an analytics and reporting solution to monitor the world’s largest intranet, they came to Kx Systems.

As one of the world’s largest global enterprises, the U.S. Army manages tens of thousands of geographically dispersed computer systems and more than a million mobile users worldwide. In 2001, the Army decided to replace its enterprise web portal with a faster, more scalable portal architecture. The new portal would be a central point of enterprise information access for a staff of more than one million active soldiers, national guardsmen, reserves, and civilian employees.

Virginia-based Appian Corporation was selected to supply Appian Portal, a web solution that provides users with a single point of personalized access to enterprise applications. The portal Appian built for the Army enables a mobile and remote military force to stay connected 24x7x365.

Appian deployed “Army Knowledge Online” (AKO) in just 3.5 months, and it is considered to be the world’s largest intranet, with over 1.6 million Army personnel registered.
