You may not think Superman has much to offer to the world of business process management, but there are some surprising similarities between the Man of Steel and the latest innovation within the Signavio Business Suite—Process Intelligence.

Up, up, and away, with the power of Process Intelligence

Whether it’s the old days of Action Comics, or the most recent Justice League film, most people are familiar with Superman—the superhero who is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

Of course, since his creation, Superman has developed a wide array of new powers and abilities. But you don't need to be born on Krypton to make use of the same amazing talents in your business: Unlock your own superpowers with Process Intelligence! As part of the SAP Signavio Process Transformation Suite, Process Intelligence has a range of functions to help businesses make better decisions, faster.

X-ray vision

Countless times, Superman’s x-ray vision has allowed him to spot trouble before it reaches him. Through automated process mining and discovery of system processes, Process Intelligence does exactly the same thing.

Using your existing IT records and reports, Process Intelligence can help match theory with reality, and demonstrate instances where “the way things actually work” differs from “the way things are supposed to work.” In short, you can see right to the heart of things, and make sure your business processes match, all the way from planning, to design, to implementation.

Freezing breath

Superman’s icy breath has been known to literally freeze bad guys in their tracks. Process Intelligence may not be as cold, but it does give you the ability to slow things down. Using variance analysis, Process Intelligence can help you examine the way your business processes operate in a single instance, or even visualize the way processes interact across multiple systems or tasks within your organization.

This means you have the chance to stop and think before acting, and determine the right actions to improve your business processes. Reducing wasted effort, avoiding incorrect solutions, and making decisions based on complete and accurate information - now that’s cool.

Doing the right thing

Superman is the ultimate do-gooder; no matter the situation, he tries to do the right thing. In an increasingly complex and ever-changing compliance environment, businesses may find it difficult to maintain the same approach. Process Intelligence allows for quick and effective conformance checking, helping you to identify and understand where your business processes comply with corporate and regulatory standards—and where improvements might be needed.

A global view

Flying high above the Earth, Superman is able to use his superhuman vision to take an overall view of the world, then move quickly to where he is most needed. Process Intelligence lets you take the same view, using customizable dashboards to provide “at a glance” visibility into key process metrics within your organization. In turn this lets you identify any issues as they arise, and take quick action to resolve them.

Reading the story

Of course, we all realize we can’t rely on Superman to swoop in and save the day every time we are in trouble—after all, he’s only a comic book character. His adventures are fun to read, and comic books, with their large panels, clever illustrations, and fast-paced stories, make it easy to keep up with the action. Fortunately, Process Intelligence does the same!

The Process Intelligence “Investigative Interface” is fully configurable, and provides an intuitive platform for you to drill down into your process data, and ensure all the facts are right in front of you. At the same time, Process Intelligence can help you construct a storyboard for sharing analysis results in an easy-to-read way—just like a comic strip.

Your own adventure

Think of Process Intelligence as your very own set of super powers, helping you stand up for transparency, efficiency, and the Signavio way! Find out more about how SAP Signavio Process Intelligence can help you begin your own adventure.
