Most business owners are going through digital transformation initiatives these days. They know it is necessary, but they also have to ask themselves, what comes out of this at the end of the day? How can I be successful with my digital transformation initiative?
Process mining has the answers to these questions. It provides the critical information and the understanding that is necessary for every process optimization initiative. Are your processes executed as designed?
With a 360-degree view of your processes, you’ll gain intelligent insights into your processes and their dependencies to find patterns, anomalies and opportunities for improvement. This gives you a solid basis for making process improvement decisions. You can evaluate changes before making them to avoid added costs later on - and you can simulate and analyze process scenarios, so you know the best way to improve them.
Here are the four steps you need to take:
- DISCOVER how processes run in the real world.
ARIS Process Mining enables you to extract process data from any of your operational IT systems. This allows you to automatically generate a graphical model of business processes based on actual execution data. You can reconstruct each process, from start to finish, gaining the crucial insight you need to plan process improvements.
- ANALYZE weak points in your business.
Identify and analyze process variants, from the most common process flow to a full visualization of all running processes. Use the results as a basis to quickly start a detailed structural analysis to determine root causes of process bottlenecks (such as lengthy processing times and high costs), process deviations or performance losses. Drill down into the details and analyze the KPIs associated with any process. You can also compare the KPIs of your designed processes with your operational processes.
- VISUALIZE process mining results across your organization.
Role-based graphical dashboards enable your employees, process owners and managers to see processes from their point of view for better decision making. Employees can combine relevant KPIs for a concise presentation of workflow performance and to facilitate an understanding of how processes are running by using interactive traffic lights, trend charts and other informative indicators.
- IMPROVE: With a 360-degree view of your processes, you’ll gain intelligent insights into your processes and their dependencies to find patterns, anomalies and opportunities for improvement. process execution.
With clear insight into the state of your processes, you can identify where best practices and optimizations can add immediate value. ARIS Process Mining helps your business to reduce operational costs and increase efficiency by giving you the right tools to make immediate, measured, positive impacts on your processes. As you refine your processes, you can see the gaps between theory and practice, and then, use this analysis to start your next digital transformation initiative.
With alerts and KPIs, provided in real time from your process mining solution, you can see the immediate impact of any changes made by your digital transformation initiative. Be confident not only that you’ve made the right changes, but that the change has the intended impact that you were aiming for.
