PADS/Celonis Academic Center of Excellence
The PADS group closely collaborates with Celonis. Celonis was founded in 2011 as one of the first commercial process mining companies. In 10 years time, Celonis grew from a small startup to Germany’s first Decacorn valued over $10 billion. The Celonis Execution Management System (EMS) combines process mining with related capabilities such as process automation, process modeling, machine learning, simulation, and big data processing. Prof. Wil van der Aalst is Celonis’s chief scientist and PADS is a Celonis Academic Center of Excellence, i.e., a premier hub within the global process mining community for educating the process miners of tomorrow. The Celonis Academic Alliance https://www.celonis.com/academic-alliance/ provides free process mining software, realistic data sets, and lots of training material. Moreover, PADS offers bachelor and Master thesis projects in collaboration with Celonis.
