EMS Platform

Core Mining Engine


Celonis provides the world’s most advanced Process Mining engine. Using AI and an in-memory patented database to sift through terabytes of system, process and desktop user data, the Core Mining Engine creates a ‘Digital Twin’ of your organization. It identifies which execution gaps have the biggest impact on your capacity and triggers real-time actions to eliminate those gaps.

Where the Core Mining Engine fits into the EMS platform


The core mining engine automatically turns real-time data into knowledge about how your processes run, while allowing for easy editing of business and process KPIs.


Then the Core Mining Engine draws on Celonis Machine Learning to interpret that knowledge, identify execution gaps, and know the best course of action to fix them.


Lastly, the Core Mining Engine triggers the Automation Engine to take corrective action, and the two engines work in tandem to maximize execution capacity.
