Intelligent automation is about more than simply eliminating manual tasks. Itโ€™s about connecting your desired outcomes to the right actions, and ensuring those actions are taken at the right time. Celonisโ€™ enterprise-grade Automation Engine helps you do just that with modern APIs, machine-learning triggers, and intelligent workflows known as Celonis Skills.

Where the Automation Engine fits into the EMS platform


The platform extracts real-time data from your source systems, and transforms it into knowledge.


The Core Mining Engine draws on machine-learning to interpret that knowledge, identifying execution gaps and how best to fix them, triggering the Automation Engine into action.


The Automation Engine takes action by intelligently automating workflows across systems, prioritizing work by impact and alerting people to their next best action.


The two engines work in tandem to continuously maximize execution capacity.
