“Four years ago we – Bastian Nominacher, Martin Klenk and I – formally established Celonis. Since then, we have helped companies use their big data to improve their internal processes and are building a world leading, international software company. Today Process Mining is already used in over 13 different industries, from the revision in accounting through to supply chain management and customer service. Thus the first place is a confirmation of the work of the entire Celonis team about which we are very happy. The prize motivates us to continue to grow rapidly and drive further innovation.” Explained Alexander Rinke, co-founder of Celonis.
