A process-driven business transformation supports organizations across all industries and dimensions to compare their status quo with target state and “as-implemented” versions of their business processes. Enterprises may gain an understanding of any variances in their systems, optimize the data collected in those systems, and pull it all together to reveal the company’s story with the help of intuitive dashboards and investigative interfaces. By linking processes to operations, business leaders can perform data-driven, end-to-end transformation initiatives based on conclusive proof. This way, organizations can unlock the information, visibility, and quantifiable numbers needed for continual growth and process excellence. All this is possible with SAP Signavio Process Intelligence.

What is SAP Signavio Process Intelligence?

SAP Signavio Process Intelligence is an integral part of BPI by SAP. The solution covers the latest process mining capabilities at scale, supporting smarter business decision-making by providing powerful fact-based insights into potential risks and continuous enhancement opportunities. It therefore enables companies to identify hidden business value in their processes and data.
SAP Signavio Process Intelligence allows enterprises to run highly granular process analysis for actionable enhancements, create smart diagnostics to test bottlenecks and simulations, evaluate process change alternatives considering best practices, optimize business processes for robotic process automation (RPA), hyper-automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) as well as derive precise customer behavior for improved customer journeys. In the context of RISE with SAP, the solution further boosts an organization’s S/4HANA transformation to the next level.

What are the benefits of SAP Signavio Process Intelligence?

SAP Signavio Process Intelligence helps organizations to gain an improved understanding of their data to drive fact-based changes. By running this solution, enterprises may gain an improved end-to-end view of their processes – from event logs to user interactions. From a technical standpoint, companies can manage their data, develop new models, integrate outputs across third-party applications and set metrics for in-depth analysis to understand as-is operations, activities, and sequences. In this context, businesses may benefit from out-of-the-box capabilities to reduce time-to-analysis with ETL connectors and templated transformations for the most common processes, including P2P, O2C & ITSM.

Interaction and investigation of what matters most has never been smoother, since SAP Signavio Process Intelligence instantly uncovers business process inefficiencies and bottlenecks for seamless operations. Process stories can be examined to compare KPIs, conduct impact analysis, and learn about variants to streamline business operations. Organizations can dynamically map and connect their process control flows for frontline enhancement in compliance, deviations, and waste. By conducting root cause analysis, the solution enables investigation into delays, skipped activities and sequence of events, while drastically reducing cycle times and rework.

As SAP Signavio Process Intelligence uncovers process inefficiencies for enhanced operations, businesses can further benefit from setting widgets for accelerated performance analysis and outcome sharing. These widgets allow facilitated consumption and detailed extractions for immediate insights on performance KPIs, cycle-time analysis, and overall business health indicators. In addition to widgets, process performance and compliance metrics can be built and combined with process mining investigations to speed up business outcomes.

SAP Signavio Process Intelligence allows enterprises to see more of the information they really need – in just one single platform. By connecting and extracting data with enhanced integration capabilities, it is possible to connect to various source systems to explore relevant widgets for instant information. As a result, business leaders can turn their data into an environment where business, process, and IT work together to further drive efficiency and effectiveness.


SAP Process Intelligence can be considered a real game-changer for business process management. The solution equips organizations with next-generation end-to-end capabilities to manage their business transformation in a more efficient and effective way: from accurate as-is process improvement, root-cause analysis to continuous monitoring. Based on transparent process data, SAP Process Intelligence embraces improved decision-making on how processes execute. Conformance checking can consequently be leveraged to guarantee that standard practices are executed as initially intended, enabling a quick identification of exceptions. Thanks to the derivation of complete end-to-end perspectives and performance overviews, business leaders can better understand what is happening in their organization in real-time in order to safeguard operational health.

In our next post, we will examine SAP Signavio Process Intelligence in more detail. Stay tuned.
