Celonis is making it easier for businesses to drive process improvements at scale and speed with updates to its low-code development environment, Celonis Studio. These improvements include a new Studio UI, simplified dashboard creation, more intuitive layout and configuration of components, easier PQL development and more.
“Our reimagined experience makes using Studio easy, even joyful,” said Ardan Arac, Senior Vice President of Product Management at Celonis. “With this big upgrade to Studio experience, we hope analysts can get up and running quickly, and produce beautiful dashboards and apps or get to answers to their questions with ease. “
The Studio updates were just some of the innovations and new platform capabilities Celonis announced at Celosphere 2023, its annual user conference in Munich. During the two-day event, the company also debuted Process Intelligence Graph, Process Copilot, Transformation Hub and a new Material Emissions App.
The Studio changes will be released in limited availability (LA) to select Celonis customers and partners from late November, with general availability in Q1 2024. To request LA access, please reach out to your Celonis representative.
Building analyses and apps is critical for value identification and realization with Celonis. Business users, such as an order management team member, access Celonis process insights through capabilities like Process Explorer and Process Adherence Manager (formerly Process Sphere). Studio is where analysts create the analyses, dashboards and automations that deliver those insights through “apps”.
The Studio enhancements announced today make it easier to build apps and analyses with minimal training, offering a guided experience that reduces time-to-build. They also reduce the amount of process mining expertise and Celonis product knowledge required to build effectively.
The new drag-and-drop and drop Studio interface makes building apps and analysis faster and easier than ever before.
The following major enhancements are designed to make your Studio experience more streamlined and efficient.
Revamped Studio navigation:
Simplified package and asset creation: Minimize user inputs with new templates that pre-populate fields and auto-create assets.
New Studio and app landing page: Find assets quickly with fast access to recently-visited packages and apps and a new global search feature.
Streamlined asset navigation: Fast navigation between assets based on typical analyst journeys.
