Earlier this Spring, global IT consultancy Gartner emphasized the growing influence of process mining by releasing its first “Magic Quadrant” report evaluating technology providers in the sector. The company the report acknowledged as the leading provider in its grid—Munich, Germany-based Celonis—recently announced the expansion of its European operations by naming a Country Leader for Switzerland.
As technology enabling organizations to automate business processes proliferates, adjacent tech that provides greater visibility into the processes themselves—process mining—has gained momentum and is being integrated into the software offerings of a growing number of providers. According to Gartner, 80 percent of organizations—driven by the expectations of cost reduction and automation-derived enhanced process efficiency—will embed process mining capabilities in at least 10 percent of their business operations by 2025.
Celonis said it created the new position to meet increasing European demand and appointed Vincent Leber to build its Swiss business.
“Never before has the demand for our technology been as high as it is today—we want to reflect this in Switzerland, with this newly-created position,” said Remy Lazarovici, Celonis’ managing director for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “This is because more and more companies are recognizing how they can use process mining to react more quickly to changes, improve their liquidity and become more resilient overall, even—or especially—during times of macroeconomic challenges.”
