MEHRWERK ProcessMining (MPM)

MEHRWERK GmbH was founded in 2008 with the vision to implement agile and user-friendly Data Analytics. The company has developed MEHRWERK ProcessMining (MPM) on the BI platform Qlik Sense to offer comprehensive Process Mining capabilities to enterprise customers. MPM combines self-service Process Mining, visual and associative analytics so that even non-experts achieve quick results. The platform enables MPM to integrate functionalities that expand the sole Process Mining capability with Advanced Analytics, AI tools, Process Benchmarking, Big Data approaches and real-time scenarios. Its data governance capabilities empower users to enrich and create ad hoc analyses and dashboards without the need of programming skills. MEHRWERK has deployed its solution in various industries, including Automotive, Healthcare, Energy, Manufacturing and governmental institutions and created on that basis a comprehensive and free insider content portal named the ProcessMining BlackBox.

Distinctive Focus and Features

  • Associative Engine: MEHRWERK ProcessMining use Qlik’s native Associative Engine that allows the user to search across all data in any direction with no pre-aggregated data or pre-defined queries. Compared with traditional query-based methods, it offers the flexibility to explore data from all perspectives in a dynamic, interactive interface. Data analysis is no longer restricted to linear exploration. The competitive advantage is a direct overview of which data is related and which is not.
  • Dashboard flexibility: Dashboards can be easily configured using a highly advanced palette of charts and tables. KPIs can be tailored to any specific need. On top of that, the user can create snapshots of any sheet and enrich them with visual effects and text in order to present the results (called “Stories”) to stakeholders.
  • Comprehensive ETL functionality: With more than 100 connectors, the tool leverages Qlik’s ability to source data from any kind of database and IT system.
