[CASE STUDY] Accelerating Business Growth with an Agile Platform

NBTY is the largest vertically integrated source of nutritional supplements in the US. The organization recognized that it needed to modernize its IT infrastructure to keep up with consumer demand and quickly roll out high quality products to the market. NBTY selected Appian’s Application Platform to drive program definition across its entire scope of work and enhance visibility and management. Through Appian’s agile development approach, NBTY has accelerated operations for critical programs across the entire organization, including a Store Renovation Process which has reduced the renovation time for Vitamin World retail outlets from 35 days to 13 days.
 
Key case study takeaways:
