Pegasystems Inc., the software company that crushes business complexity, today at PegaWorld® iNspire announced the acquisition of Everflow, an innovative process mining software company based in Brazil. Everflow’s highly intuitive software will enable Pega clients to uncover and fix hidden process inefficiencies that often bog down organizational operations. Combined with Pega’s market-leading AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation capabilities, this acquisition will help Pega deliver the most complete hyperautomation solution available for enterprises.
As business complexity continues to rise, process mining has emerged as a critical tool to help organizations streamline bloated and inconsistent processes that slow employee productivity and ultimately harm the bottom line. But two major limitations hold back process mining’s full potential: first, most process mining tools are too difficult to use and are understood only by technical business consultants; second, process mining by itself can’t fix process problems, it can only identify where those problems lie and suggest possible work arounds.
Everflow will provide Pega clients with an easy-to-use process mining solution that allows businesspeople to analyse and optimize their customer and employee-related processes. It makes it simple for users to automatically model their real-world processes based on organizational activity logs. Then the software analyzes where those processes break down in the field and suggests ways to improve the approach. For example, a retail banking head may deploy Everflow to determine if customers are abandoning the bank’s mobile app when it takes too many clicks to complete a transaction, or an insurance executive may discover if back-office bottlenecks in the application approval workflow are slowing their underwriters down.
But the true power of Everflow’s elegant solution will be fully unlocked when combined with Pega’s market-leading platform for AI-powered decisioning and workflow automation – where these processes already live for many of the world’s leading organizations. When integrated, the solution will help Pega clients continuously monitor processes across the enterprise, identify process issues or deviations when they arise, and even fix them on the fly. This will evolve the process mining field beyond static modeling and deliver real-time process optimization, deploying true hyperautomation on an enterprise scale to improve operations and customer experiences.
The new process mining capability is expected to be available for Pega clients on a limited basis in Q4 this year and with general availability early next year. It will be offered as an add-on capability to Pega Process AI™ – a set of Pega Platform™ capabilities introduced last year that uses self-optimizing AI and decision management to help businesses improve their operations in real time. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The news will be announced today at Pega’s flagship event, PegaWorld iNspire, which is available online on Tuesday, May 24, in the Americas and Europe or Wednesday, May 25, for Asia Pacific and on replays thereafter. After the keynotes, join the Supercharge Your Pega Workflows with Process Mining and Process AI session to learn more about how Pega plans to bring process mining and AI together to deliver the most complete hyperautomation solution available.
