Apromore

With over a decade of research experience in process mining, the contributors behind Apromore engineered extensive academic expertise into their solution. The open-source software is available as a free Community Edition and as a subscription-based Enterprise Edition that includes commercial add-ons, connectors and services. Apromore offers robust process discovery capabilities, process comparison, conformance checking and an authoring environment to manipulate BPMN process models. Predictive process monitoring is available as well and can be fine-tuned with sophisticated settings by experienced users. Apromore finds application in the public sector, banking, insurance, telecommunications and more. The provider raised close to USD 5 million in a Series A funding round in mid-2020 with plans to further extend and improve the functionality of its platform.

Distinctive Focus and Features

  • Predictive analytics: Apromore offers a sophisticated plugin to predict the remaining time of a running case, the next activity of a running case with a respective probability, and more. The model training UI offers advanced settings for feature engineering and a choice of prediction algorithms including random forests and XGBoost.
  • Process modeling: Apromore’s integrated BPMN editor can be used to create, edit, share and merge process models. Model versioning allows stakeholders to revert back to older versions of a model.
