    Celonis is ideal for the recruitment process, which involves individuals applying, interviewing, being offered, and accepting positions. Celonis also allows the HR department to manage the data from the recruitment process, allowing them to track the speed of the process and understand why candidates drop out. Celonis examines the efficacy of HR systems, how they respond to employee requests, and who is in charge of specific activities.

    Microsoft Power BI

    In operations we use the tool for many different topics, from factory quality systems to high level reviews.We have created kind of an internal "App Store" based on Power BI where you have a lot of different dashboards for different solutions (cost, cash, health and safety, sales, factories, distribution centers...) and you as an user just need to get in that "App Store" and enter in whatever tool can be useful for you. It is open to all the operations employees and can use on demand.Also it has raised the imagination of our colleagues, as they are not only working by themselves creating new reports, but also raising fantastic ideas that can be extended for the usage of all the community.

    Pros

    Celonis

    • The team is incredible at integrating background tables, and building out the real-life processes end users are going through so that opportunities can be quickly identified. They continually persevere and are willing to bring in new data sets to make the platform as productive as possible.
    • The team continually challenges our internal business processes and setups to ensure that we are hunting for opportunities and pushing the limits of what we thought was possible for improving our operations
    • The X-ray view within the process explorer and the variant explorer provides a transparent overview of the order to cash process which we did not have previously
    • OLAP tables and different dimensions to slice the data with [helping] us find the root cause of the improvement opportunity that we want to focus on
    • Execution instruments like Action Flow help us take advantage of any insights provided to us within the process explorer
    • Dashboard views of specific KPIs help us build and export management reports with ease
    Alexandra Robb | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    • Quickly filter and view granular data sets with easily configurable reporting figures.
    • The ability to quickly switch between tabs allows for historical data comparisons and progress tracking.
    • It's helpful to dive into the data and break it down from high levels to small.
    • Achieve actionable insights faster by using real-time data. It's incredible to have online access to reports.

    Cons

    Celonis

    • Performance: While most of the time the performance is great, there are still days where the performance is too low for too long periods of time.
    • Still some minor, inexplicable errors with no pattern (i.e. Data Load gets stuck for 2 days)
    • Client Centricity (They are working on that with their new structure of Consultants, though)
    Maurice Schepp | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft Power BI

    • The desktop app is great but needs a lot of performance improvements
    • No MacOS Version for the Desktop app, this is a big limitation for business since executives prefer Macs
    • Premium Cloud Version of Power BI is awfully expensive
    • On-Premise Version of the Power BI Reports Server is bundled only with SQL Server Enterprise License and cannot be purchased separately and requires Software Assurance Subscription
    • On-Premise Power BI Report Server doesn't support ADFS, AzureAD or any Claims-Based authentication platform, a sad disadvantage for enterprises

    We have been able to leverage Celonis [greatly] because of the commitment and support we receive from our data scientist. I strongly believe that we would not be able to accomplish this without her assistance. Moreover, when we escalate matters, the product development is engaged and commits resources to make sure our initiatives/business cases are supported.

    It is a great tool but also requires a lot of work to get it into a useable fashion. Part of this is on our end as we don't have the dedicated analyst function yet to really become self-sufficient with Celonis. It also uncovers a lot of data issues or at the very least, multiple rounds of development and data validation are required before getting to a position where the business users feel comfortable with the data being reflected. This is fairly normal with any data-related development effort and perhaps not unique to Celonis.

    At this point, I think we all know who has taken the lead in the business intelligence and analytics market worldwide. With fresh new updates every other day on top of an already robustly built product with all features that one can dream of is a no brainer, I feel. Microsoft will invariably be synonymous with quality and professionalism.

    We submit tickets to Celonis through product support. No assistance is generally provided, have to wait and the ticket is then escalated to product support in Germany. Many times we submit the ticket and the support desk asks us the same questions back where they should already have this information.

    I can't really speak to the support overall, [but] I will say that in the almost three years I have used the system, I have only needed to contact their support team once. I think the team was helpful, but it did take some time for us to resolve the issues/ request that they had. I guess the good news is that the system is pretty stable, and I personally have rarely needed to contact their technical support team.

    Alternatives Considered

    Celonis

    The key difference for me as the user and as an analyst is the ease with which Celonis allowed me to shape the analysis myself. Other tools rely on what an analyst created in hopes that it will serve the purpose to everybody. So many times, however, I find myself stuck, wishing to apply a different angle to my analysis but needing to request IT enhancement, which takes time. Celonis gives me the extra flexibility which I have not yet experienced anywhere else.

    [Microsoft] Power BI is practical and effective, like a hammer for a nail, it is easy to use and produces very quickly the results that in most cases are urgently required by clients (nice reports to share on the web). To start using [Microsoft] Power BI you need a business email address, with that you create an account in Power BI Service and in less than 1 hour you will have installed Power BI Desktop, a report will have been created and it will have been published on the web .

    Return on Investment

    Celonis

    • I have seen Celonis save tens of millions of euros for some clients in the improvements of processing of invoices.
    • I have seen Celonis take days off of processing times in purchasing processes.
    • I have seen Celonis provide insights for potential opportunities but no monetary or process-based results when an organization did not take action of the insights generated by the platform.

    • It helps us track and achieve company goals.
    • It shows us [our] performance in areas we could not previously track and allows us to see and work on how to improve their performance.
    • Quick easy access for executives to use in helping teams and addressing issues.
