Celonis

Perfect for accelerating analytical tools. I can not come up with a better alternative now. That is why I give it 10/10 points. It allows you to:
  • Understand what the processes look like in your company (if it runs SAP HANA)
  • Analyze global processes as well as details
  • Build and maintain process KPIs
  • Focus on specific, non-standardized processes
  • Focus on performance of branches, teams, external partnerts (if they use SAP HANA)

Pros

  • Quick development
  • Integrating with other systems
David Cohen profile photo
  • Provide big picture information and drill down to details, such as actors, cases, documents
  • Combine process discovery data with other business, e.g. controlling data
  • Great user interface
  • Unlike other products such as Minit or Disco, this tool is great at being able to directly enrich the findings with cost or revenue data
  • Easy to build and calculate critical process KPIs and demonstrate the findings to management (decision makers)

Cons

  • Expression Rule Editor has a lot of room for improvement, as it is not as easy as other IDE internment
  • Adding features to debug and trace code in editors and process models.
  • Adding features to accept anonymous objects in process model instead of just strong typed objects.
  • A better way to handle multiple calls for smart activities in a process model.
  • More easy ways to navigate objects in the Designer tool

  • It works with SAP HANA. Unfortunately, we did not succeed with connecting it to the older SAP versions
  • Working with data models is not easy. The data model has to be 100% correct, otherwise the results bring confusion (either visible or not visible) or the model does not provide any data
  • Support for all standard SAP modules

If given the chance I would use Appian again. It was a good tool and they are constantly improving it. It was fairly easy to use and any developer who knows JavaScript can customize it to their hearts desire. Once I got used to how it operated my creativity increased and I began thinking of many different types of workflows I could create both for the company and for myself.

Support for Appian is fairly good. However I have found sometimes that the on-premise support can be a little lacking as this is not Appian's strategic route.

As analyst I participated in a developer boot camp. At times it was hard to keep up but most of the time it made sense. Trainer took the time to explain and slowed pace down to answer questions etc.

Alternatives Considered

Appian is a much more well rounded tool that is easy to learn and provides a much cleaner user interface.

I have used the process mining software, Minit. Compared to Celonis, Minit does not allow us to enrich process data with other business data, but Minit is a universal process discovery tool. It can be further coupled with PowerBI or similar software for data enrichment. The reporting options and UX are far more advanced in Celonis, but Celonis is purely SAP HANA oriented.

Return on Investment

  • Not yet clear, though it is expected to have a positive return on investment and be a significant upgrade from the system previously in place
  • External companies will have an easier more efficient time interacting with the agency for which I work, which should see an increase in use and registrations through Appian

  • Using Celonis speeds up the whole company by restructuring projects. It saves time and human work.
  • Celonis provides perfect transparency - as well as other process mining tools - but it goes further. It allows us to combine the process KPIs with, for example, cost or revenue data.
  • Enables us to make decisions based on real-life numbers.
