New York, NY— June 22, 2017 – Celonis today announced that it has been selected as a recipient of Supply & Demand Chain Executive’s SDCE 100 Award for 2017 for its work with global telecommunications company, Vodafone. With Celonis Process Mining, Vodafone was able to fully understand its end-to-end processes and achieve 100 percent transparency into business operations, creating a significant cost reduction and improved time to market.
Vodafone’s challenge was to transform its massive purchasing operations and adapt back-end processes to match changing business demands. With the goal of increasing the number of “perfect purchase orders” and achieving business excellence, Vodafone used Celonis Process Mining to explore massive amounts of data to reconstruct what actually happens in business processes, spot inefficiencies and suggest improvements automatically.
“Many organizations operate in the dark when it comes to business process efficiency because they have no way to see if they’re wasting time, energy and resources with poorly executed processes, or if processes are actually running as designed,” said Alexander Rinke, co-CEO and co-founder of Celonis. “Process Mining provides the visibility companies need and our work with Vodafone shows how it can help an organization truly understand their supply chain so decision makers can pinpoint inefficiencies and fine-tune operations. We’re extremely proud that we’ve been able to help Vodafone build on its world-class supply chain operation and that the exceptional work they’ve done is being recognized by a leading industry voice like Supply & Demand Chain Executive.”
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. The projects honored can serve as a map for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. The projects show how supply chain solutions and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
“Our goal with 2017’s Top 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain,” says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. “The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!”

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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
