Likelihood to Recommend

Celonis

Celonis is very well suited for business process improvement opportunities. This includes all types of transformation programs starting from SAP ECC to S/4 Transformations, ERP instance consolidations, digital transformations, etc. It is very effective in application rationalization initiatives and well as improving automation and reducing process bottlenecks. For continuous improvement and monitoring initiatives, Celonis is also widely used.Celonis may not be a great fit where applications are planned to be decommissioned.

Anything where automation would be helpful, I'd recommend. If you're doing a task over and over again, Automate can likely work and do it for you. It helps to keep things running exactly the same so that when failures occur, they can easily be traced to their source.

Pros

Celonis

  • It is very gratifying when you demonstrate Celonis capabilities to clients and they easily discover the problems that their processes have that they did not know about.
  • I especially like to use the processes that they already have pre-built because they are very fast to implement and obtain results.
  • I consider that it is a mandatory use for any migration of information systems or before any implementation of robotization projects.

  • Very detailed task builder. Easy to read step by step a task's operation even if you don't have much programming knowledge.
  • Scheduling for automation jobs is very flexible. Allows us to create all kinds of job schedules as needed.
  • Organization of jobs, tasks, conditions is done well. Allows us to easily manage our items.

Cons

Celonis

  • 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

  • AutoMate's Windows interface can be quite buggy at times. We are using the latest and final build of AutoMate 10. It took many iterations to get this most stable build, but there are still many little issues that happen when building tasks. Copying and pasting too much causes GUI errors and can crash. Things don't indent properly, success/failure arrow lines in the Job window don't flow perfectly straight, etc. There is a newer version AutoMate 11, but it's so buggy we can't even use it properly.
  • Memory management is terrible on Aut 10 and 11. Just working in the program for a little bit building tasks has memory leaks that don't resolve until you close out of the program. You'll be using several GB of ram in no time.
  • Dashboard reporting could be better. We'd like a better way to track how jobs are running, when failures occur, etc. You can do that now, but the interface is cumbersome.

Alternatives Considered

Celonis

Signavio is strong through its integrated product suite and is first choice for S/4 HANA transformations.Mehrwerk as an add-on to Qlik has huge BI capabilities and an on-premises version that makes it attractive in case cloud use is forbidden.

At an older job we used to use SSIS as kind of an automation tool as well as it could also be used to connect to FTP sources, read files, etc. AutoMate is simply centrally designed to be true automation software. It is much more robust, can work with a variety of software (including SSIS itself) and is much quicker to integrate and troubleshoot.

Return on Investment

Celonis

  • Being a technology that supports processes across the entire value chain regardless of the industry, Nae has applied it to improve different areas such as financial, commercial or customer service processes, increasing productivity, savings and revenue valued at millions of euros.

  • It's been a net positive as AutoMate requires less eyes on specific tasks so that people can focus attention elsewhere and do more analysis.
  • Less manual work also decreases the chances of mistakes and/or missed jobs. Since Automate can schedule everything, send email notifications, etc., there is less time wasted.
