    COVID-19 has had a deep impact on the supply chain of essential products with lockdowns and panic-buying. Retail chains like grocery stores, supermarkets, pharmacies, and others are facing major challenges in procuring and delivering these products to consumers. Join our on-demand webinar as we believe how we transformed Walgreens’ supply chain will resonate with the current situation.

The visualizations were essential to support the data sharing strategy between Walgreens and their suppliers.

    In this webcast, Walgreens describes how they used Kyvos and Tableau to analyze two years of historical data instantly and interactively to get deeper insights into their supply chain.

    Recent figures suggest eCommerce sales, driven largely by the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, have risen 88% globally. With the internet awash with eCommerce experts analyzing the current state of online shopping as well as highlighting the challenges of fulfillment that we’re currently experiencing; focus is beginning to shift to what happens after the crisis, when these challenges are no longer prevalent.

    Hopefully sooner rather than later, this global threat will pass, and physical stores will once again open their doors to the masses. As current barriers such as air lane closures and social distancing measures are removed, will we return to business as usual? What will the new ‘normal’ look like?

    Our panel of experts will discuss current consumer behavior, as well as delivery and eCommerce trends that might signal what online shopping will look like post-pandemic. With speakers including experts from across the eCommerce landscape, they’ll take a deep dive into the key learnings retail leaders and delivery providers should be taking away from this period of disruption, in order to thrive in the future retail environment.

  • Introduction to Process Mining
    Introduction to Process Mining
    Anthony Deighton, Chief Marketing Officer, Celonis Recorded: Nov 21 2019 40 mins
    When your processes run better, your business runs better. From Finance and Customer Service to Production and IT, the more fluid your operations are, the better the experience for your employees and customers. But over time, friction creeps in: departmental silos, manual workarounds, and disparate systems cause costs to rise and experiences to suffer. With process mining, you can pinpoint those sources of friction and purge them from your processes.

    Process mining is an analytical discipline for discovering, monitoring, and improving real processes by extracting knowledge from event logs readily available in today’s information systems. It offers objective, fact-based insights, derived from actual event logs, that help you audit, analyze, and improve your existing business processes by answering both compliance-related and performance-related questions.

    Join this webinar to learn:
    - How to get full transparency to your business core processes across functions, systems, and initiatives
    - Strategies for implementing process changes at scale
    - How leading companies like Siemens and Vodafone are leveraging process mining to achieve business outcomes including operating efficiency, perfect POs, and on-time delivery
