Celonis, IBM and Red Hat join forces

Celonis, IBM and Red Hat have announced a global strategic partnership to accelerate the adoption of the Celonis execution management system (EMS) and help deliver more flexibility and choice in how customers deploy the technology.

The collaboration seeks to accelerate how customers apply process mining, intelligence and automation to the core enterprise system functions and processes that drive business execution.

Celonis’ EMS is said to sit on top of core enterprise systems such as ERP and CRM, pulls real-time data from them, and applies process intelligence in order to help unlock execution capacity across a business.

IBM global business services is bolstering its consulting approach by implementing Celonis software as part of its methodology, and Celonis is embracing an open hybrid cloud strategy by re-platforming on RedHat OpenShift to deliver more flexibility and choice for customers.

Miguel Milano, Celonis chief revenue officer and co-owner said: “Through the strategic partnership with IBM and Red Hat, we plan to help power the shift from analogue to intelligent business execution, helping many of the world’s largest companies with their transactional systems, boosting their business performance. It’s incredibly powerful for our customers to be able to combine the Celonis execution management system with Red Hat OpenShift’s hybrid cloud approach and IBM global business services’ expertise.”

Mark Foster, IBM services’ senior vice president added: “This strategic partnership accelerates IBM’s billion-dollar partner ecosystem commitment and reflects our bold approach to expanding into high growth, emerging categories to help meet the evolving hybrid cloud and AI needs of our clients. The bottom line is our clients are looking to accelerate the transformation of their workflows and make them more intelligent. Through this powerful new global strategic partnership with Celonis, we’re adding to IBM’s suite of technology capabilities to unlock value and help propel our clients’ growth and innovation.”
