Microsoft recently announced that Power Automate Process Mining has become available as of August 1, 2023. Process intelligence is changing the way businesses optimize their processes, save costs, and discover opportunities to run more efficient business operations. Power Automate Process Mining, infused with next-generation AI, now enables organizations to easily understand what is happening across their business, maximize process insights, use out-of-box recommendations to reduce the complexity of processes, transform operations, and drive continuous process improvement with automation and low-code apps.

Power Automate Process Mining

The process mining capability in Power Automate works with the existing Microsoft platform and ecosystem to provide end-to-end solutions and enable faster business decisions. Out-of-box templates enable customers to seamlessly drive powerful business process insights from core line-of-business apps like SAP and also from cloud flows in Power Automate, Power Apps, Power Virtual Agents, Azure (DevOps, Logic Apps, Durable Functions, Bot Framework), and other systems of records.

Identify inefficiencies and gain insights with deep analytics

You can get insights for process improvement by capturing rich visual process maps, analyzing end-to-end processes with AI-powered root cause analysis, and unlocking hierarchical views with interactive drill-downs. Use recommended key performance indicators (KPIs) and filter options to uncover inefficiencies and opportunities for automation. Get value faster with out-of-box templates for finance including order-to-cash and peer-to-peer pay, supply chain, and other use cases.
