Celonis can now map multiple processes and present them in a metro-style map • TechCrunch

Celonis has made a huge impact since its launch in 2011, raising $2.4 billion along the way. His most recent investment, a $1bn raise in August, was at a $13.2bn post-money valuation, the kind of money he hasn’t seen in 2022.

The company has built its reputation primarily through the use of process mining software, discovering how work flows through a business and finding ways to make it more efficient. So far, you’ve done pretty well at documenting one process at a time.

But today at Celosphere, the company’s annual customer conference, it announced a breakthrough in what the technology has been able to do: It introduced a new product called Process Sphere that changes the product from a single process to a more complex interdepartmental, multiple processes.

Alex Rinke, CEO and co-founder of the company, says the new approach makes the entire process mining experience that much more powerful.

“We always talk about an individual process like audits, invoices or procurement, whatever the process is. We said, ‘how can we reinvent this and take it to the next level?’ And that’s why we built a new processing technology, which is very revolutionary and allows you to see multiple processes at the same time because a lot of times there’s a lot of friction in the interface between, say, your sales process and your shipping process, or your shipping process and your billing process [and this allows you to see all that in a single view]Rinke told TechCrunch.

They created a very compelling visual interface to show the various processes; it looks a lot like a subway map, but instead of showing switching stations, it shows points in one process where it intersects with a second or third process.

“We call it a subway map, and each process looks like a subway line, and you look at the subway map of your business, you can zoom in and out and only look at specific lines. And it’s a very, very powerful engine, and we put a lot of work into making it clear and simple,” he said.

He added, “It enables a lot of use cases, whether it’s in commerce, whether it’s supply chain, whether it’s financial operations, because you can understand what’s going on in an entire business at the intersection of multiple business processes.”
