Helsinki, Finland January 23, 2014- QPR Software, a provider of software and services for operational development, today announces new release of its Automated Business Process Discovery (ABPD) and Process Mining software product QPR ProcessAnalyzer. Release 2014.1 includes enhanced core data import capabilities, notifications and process visualization. The product allows for automated data integration directly from different business IT-systems as well as databases. QPR ProcessAnalyzer 2014.1 makes it easier for process owners and data practitioners to import relevant data from source systems for process discovery and analysis. The inclusive ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) functionalities remove the need to use a separate tool for working with data and enable users to automate the normally laborious data transfers. This opens new possibilities for business benefits and operative management support, as analysis and improvement of business critical processes can be done continuously, as opposed to one-off projects. ďAnalyzing process data is fairly straightforward but it is the data acquisition where the challenges usually arise. To help our customers, weíve focused on making data acquisition as easy as possible, allowing for automated reiterations for continuous process improvement and monitoring. QPR ProcessAnalyzer comprises Salesforce, SAP and ODBC interfaces for direct and easy data import. This gives us the position to enable enterprise level process improvement initiatives, truly following the principle of any data, any processĒ, comments Matti Erkheikki, SVP Direct Sales and OEM. Integrated data extraction Release 2014.1 includes dedicated interface to SAP and support for access middleware ODBC (Open DataBase Connectivity). Now QPR ProcessAnalyzer enables integrated and continuous data extraction directly from SAP and provides a universal data access interface, allowing maximum interoperability with databases. The latter significantly eases and quickens data extraction as it can be done directly from the databases, not needing to spend time making custom modifications to the interfaces of source systems. Communication & visualization QPR ProcessAnalyzer can now be set to send automated email notifications to the organization e.g. when a process performance level does not comply with agreed threshold. This gives operative management full control over processes and enables proactive reacting to changes. Notifications can be extended even for end customers to keep them up-to-date on e.g. their order progress. In addition, communication to relevant stakeholders can be further enhanced with animation feature for clearly visualizing the process flow and bottlenecks. QPR ProcessAnalyzer is an ABPD software product that provides the exact Ďas-isí process flowchart and detailed process performance information for analysis and improvement of business processes. Using the relevant data from business support systems, the software product delivers facts and actionable insight for making the right decisions for optimized processes.
