PAF and SDG enter into strategic partnership


The best of both worlds - BI combined with Process Mining


Darmstadt, October 10, 2018 The SDG Group and the Process Analytics Factory (PAF) have entered into a strategic partnership in the field of Artificial Process Intelligence. With 10 PAFnow certified consultants, SDG expands its service and consulting portfolio with Process Mining.

The Microsoft technologies on which PAFnow is based, such as Power BI, are already being used in numerous SDG projects. In combination with existing process, professional and technical know-how, the decisive success factors for Process Mining are perfectly covered. Thus PAFnow complements the service spectrum of SDG in the field of Process Mining in an optimal way.

Skills, such as continuous monitoring and alerting, are increasingly playing a decisive role in the context of Process Mining. After all, after an initial data-driven as-is analysis of their business processes, companies not only want to receive concrete recommendations for initial optimization or automation initiatives. They also want to be able to continuously check whether the measures that are considered sensible are actually taking effect and whether the processes are improving sustainably.

SDG, which was recently listed by Gartner as a “Data and Analytics Representative Vendor”, brings together the best of the two worlds of Process Mining and Business Intelligence.

About the partnership

„Wir sind von der Resonanz unserer Kunden auf die Erweiterung unseres Leistungsportfolios mehr als positiv überrascht. Das große Interesse zeigt uns, dass die Kombination unserer BI- und Process Mining-Expertise als sehr wertvoll erachtet wird. Das nahtlose Zusammenspiel dieser beiden so wichtigen Disziplinen auch technologisch zu unterstützen war ausschlaggebend für diese Partnerschaft. Zudem bietet uns diese die Möglichkeit, eigene IP rund um PAFnow aufzubauen und neue Services für Kunden in unseren Fokus-Industrien anzubieten.“ Christian Kruse, Vorstand, SDG Consulting AG

„Wir freuen uns sehr, die SDG als einen der führenden „Data and Analytics Service Provider“ für PAFnow gewonnen zu haben. Wir teilen die Leidenschaft, die Prozesse unserer Kunden nachhaltig besser machen zu wollen. Dazu braucht es die Kombination aus fachlicher Expertise und analytischem Know-How. Beides vereint die SDG schon seit vielen Jahren und ist damit sowohl national als auch international eine enorme Bereicherung für das PAFnetwork.“ Boris Cordes, Executive VP & CBDO, Process Analytics Factory GmbH
