UiPath Process Mining

UiPath Process Mining (formerly ProcessGold) started as a spin-off of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in 2005. The company has emerged as one of the leading Process Mining vendors and was acquired by UiPath in 2019, thus combining expertise in the fields of BPM and RPA in one solution. UiPath Process Mining offers a highly customizable Process Mining platform with the proprietary, patent-pending TRACY algorithm for fast rendering of process graphs. The vendor has been serving customers in various industries and offers a comprehensive online academy. Due to its origin in academics, a respective alliance with strong ties to university research is still upheld.

Distinctive Focus and Features

  • Innovative “TRACY” algorithm: UiPath’s very own proprietary TRACY algorithm (patent pending) was designed to simplify process graphs and the visual experience that goes with it. This involves subtle but powerful qualities like maintaining continuity of graph design as new data is added or removed or the selection of filtered data is changed. The company claims that TRACY is significantly faster than the traditional DOT layout algorithm which is especially suitable for large datasets.
  • High degree of freedom: The tool sets no boundaries to configuration options. Dashboards and sheets can be completely customized, including a native Python and R integration to drive machine learning applications and proactive insights in the process. Besides, an integrated ETL framework enables all data transformation, including key enterprise features like role-level filtering and sensitive data anonymization.
  • Focus on RPA: The end-to-end UiPath platform provides a consolidated space to leverage Process Mining insights for intelligent automation.
