Celonis acquires Lenses.io and launches Execution Graph


Process mining company Celonis acquired Lenses.io and launched the Celonis Execution Graph, which tracks processes across systems and how they connect.

Celonis recently raised $1 billion in venture capital to develop its execution management system (EMS). The Series D round valued Celonis at over $11 billion. EMS manages and optimizes business processes across multiple systems, devices and edge applications. Celonis has systems for Salesforce and SAP as well as bespoke platforms for accounts payable and receivable, purchasing, and order and inventory management. Clients include AXA, Cisco, Deloitte, Hitachi and Whirlpool to name a few.

According to co-CEO Alex Rinke, the idea behind Celonis is for companies to run on just a fraction of the data available.

Purchasing Lenses.io will bring real-time streaming data tools to Celonis. Lenses.io will bring real-time data into business execution and apply it to day-to-day operations. Lenses.io provides a developer experience for any Apache Kafka deployment, including monitoring, observability, data governance, security, and application development.

Celonis Execution Graph gives companies a complete picture of processes and how they influence each other through the company’s multi-event log. Celonis Execution Graph will provide a visualization and mapping tool for riding with EMS. Ray Wang, Director of Constellation Research argued that enterprise graphs such as Celonis Execution Graph will be the next battleground for enterprise software.


Key points on the Celonis run chart:

  • Celonis Execution Graph will provide insight into interconnected processes across an ecosystem.
  • Celonis Multi Event Log powers the execution graph and provides a tool to identify friction points in interconnected processes.
  • Celonis Signal Link is another technology that powers the Celonis runtime graph. Signal Link allows companies to connect events from different processes.

Additionally, Celonis introduced a partnership with Conexiom, a customer order and invoice automation company. Conexiom will be integrated into the Celonis EMS. Celonis and Conexiom will launch a joint product called Touchless Order Capture in Celonis EMS.

Here is an overview of the Celonis execution management system architecture.
