Growth Strategy


High-quality training data necessarily includes human beings, to record and transcribe speech for example or recognize complex images. Appen uses a crowdsourced model to engage humans at scale, but this increases the cost, time, and complexity of providing data sets. The company relies on technology to accelerate and reduce the cost of training data. It has developed and acquired platform that manages and enables crowd workers.


Appen’s Growth Strategy is Built on Four Pillars

  • Grow in New Markets: Drive growth in target customer segments China, Government, Enterprise, and Global Product
  • Automate our annotation services: Leverage AI and ML in our labelling operations to improve the productivity and quality of our workforce
  • Expand our product offering: Add new products and capabilities to expand into the broader data and AI market
  • Evolve how we do business: Improve the scalability of our operations including sales, project delivery, and crowd management
