Celonis Presents and Exhibits at Shared Services & Outsourcing Week

Celonis today announced that it is presenting and exhibiting at Shared Services & Outsourcing Week (SSOW), taking place March 6-9, 2017 in Orlando, Florida. During the event, Marc Kinast, Director of Business Development at Celonis, will deliver a presentation titled, “The New Standard in Data Analytics for your SSC: Process Mining.” In addition, Kinast and the Celoinis team will be available at booths 616 and 618 to provide live demonstrations of the company’s technology, which can reduce operational costs by 30 percent.


Today, service leaders find themselves moving into unchartered territory – where automation and analytics are seen as essential to add value. In order to succeed in today’s digital age, its imperative that decision makers in the outsourcing industry understand the massive amounts of data now available to them and how they can use that data through analytics technologies such as Process Mining.

Kinast’s presentation, at 1:10pm on Wednesday, March 8, will discuss how Process Mining is helping enterprises streamline their business processes. His session will show attendees how Celonis’s technology uses the digital footprint left behind by existing IT systems to provide complete transparency into the ways processes are occurring in real life. In addition to teaching attendees how their organizations can benefit from Process Mining, Kinast will delve into examples of how leading organizations around the world are already benefiting from the technology. He’ll explain how companies such as Siemens, GE and Nestle are using Process Mining to transform their organization by increasing automation, enabling leaner processes and empowering faster operations, allowing them to lead the digital transformation.

Shared Services & Outsourcing Week has established a reputation as THE conference for companies within the SSC, BPO and GBS market looking to meet and discuss ideas that will influence the direction of their companies.

Celonis launches "Pi"

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning have already made a significant impact in many areas of big data analytics, and hold even bigger promise for the future. We’re proud to be right in the middle of this revolution with the announcement today of the Celonis Proactive Insights Engine (Pi) – the industry’s first enterprise-class, big data analytics process mining platform fueled by AI and machine learning.


The introduction of Celonis Pi is part of our continued focus on rapid innovation to help enterprises of all sizes gain unbiased visibility into their business processes so they can improve margins, business agility, and customer service while reducing operational costs. Since founding the company in 2011, we’ve helped enterprises across more than 15 industries save hundreds of millions of dollars by improving key processes such as purchase-to-pay, order-to-cash, production, logistics, accounts payable, accounts receivable and IT service management.

The new features of Celonis Pi build on the insight and visibility that our platform provides by giving prescriptive recommendations that help improve efficiency even faster. The features of Celonis Pi include four core components:

Pi Conformance

  • Compares actual operations to the ways that processes were designed to occur (conformance checking) and automatically identifies the highest priority issues and their root causes so users can take immediate action.

Pi Social

  • Provides a deep understanding of the human aspect of processes and identifies which teams have the best outcomes as well as which interactions result in lost time or bottlenecks. It also discovers where inefficiencies in an organization’s structure calls for improvement.

Pi Companion

  • Identifies potential issues before they even happen and allows users to make the right decisions during process execution rather than after a problem arises.

Pi Machine Learning

  • Makes predictions about an organization’s future so that processes can be adjusted to meet key business KPIs by using historical data. Understands that a process that works today cannot remain static forever.

Analytics software has already proven to be extremely effective at providing a spotlight for organizations to drill-down and better understand many areas of their business operations. But using this powerful technology has always required a hypothesis on where to shine the light in order to see where things were working well or working poorly. We’re ditching the flashlight and now switching on all of the lights for an entire organization. We are excited to see how the prescriptive recommendations that Celonis Pi provides will help customers improve efficiencies even more.

While the experts are eager to advance scientific research, they are also committed to reconcile these activities with practical applications. Celonis, leading software vendor within this exciting new category of Big Data Analytics, brings years of practical experience from hundreds of customers to the four working groups.

Process Mining is a relatively new discipline within Big Data analytics and arose from the research conducted at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). Process Mining discovers how business processes are really executed and identifies hidden cost drivers, weaknesses and bottlenecks. Using Process Mining, organizations such as Siemens, ABB, UBS and many more could significantly improve their business processes.

In order to further advance Research and Development in the area of Process Mining, four working groups have been established between the TU/e and Celonis SE.

Working groups for applied research

The working groups focus on various challenges such as process discovery, conformance checking, and multi-instance mining with the goal to provide novel insights and better diagnostics. In all four working groups, TU/e and Celonis SE join forces to go beyond the state of art by combining the latest research results with industry-strength software. With this new close cooperation the team around Professor Wil van der Aalst and Celonis SE aim to close the gap between academia and industry.

The combination of Research and Practice

Professor Wil van der Aalst is seen as the “Godfather of Process Mining”. He is one of the most cited computer scientists in the world and established Process Mining as a new scientific discipline around the turn of the century. His ideas and publications form the foundation of Process Mining research and practical applications globally.

Celonis also has its origin in university research: In 2011, three students at the Technical University of Munich founded a company fully focusing on Process Mining software. Today, hundreds of customers use Celonis Process Mining in over 25 countries. Customers include numerous Fortune 500 companies, as well as many small and medium-sized organizations. Due to the widespread use of its software, Celonis has a deep understanding of Process Mining in practice, thus providing valuable input for the research challenges of tomorrow.
