What is Power Automate Process Mining?

Power Automate process mining is a reporting tool that offers rich visualizations and analytics from various data sources. Unlike a Power BI dashboard, Process Mining takes data analysis further by identifying inefficiencies, bottlenecks, non-compliance, and automation opportunities in processes. It can also compare processes and monitor key performance indicators. Power Automate process mining works with the existing Microsoft platform and ecosystem. This is to provide end-to-end solutions and enable faster business decisions. Pre-built connectors are available to ingest process data and record tasks. This can be done within one user’s account as well as the ability to invite others to collaborate. Capabilities to set up rules, KPIs, and ongoing monitoring are available.

How Process Mining Works

First, the data tool records, tasks, and creates a detailed digital trail of your business processes. This recording captures the sequence and time taken for each step in your operations. Second, with the information of recorded tasks, it identifies bottlenecks. Like shining a spotlight on hidden areas that need improvement, giving you a clear picture of where your resources are being underutilized. You can start to find opportunities for improvement once bottleneck processes are identified. These can range from automation possibilities to streamlining certain tasks. The extracted event data can also be visualized to create customizable reports. These reports are essential for decision-making, as they compare different processes, identify the root causes of inefficiencies, and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) over time.

The business value of the Process Mining capability is evident in its ability to help organizations gain insights into their operational processes.

The key benefits include:
