It’s an oft heard complaint in data science that 80% of the time is taken up with data preparation, rather than the actual analysis. ProcessGold, a process mining consultancy helping clients analyze and optimize business processes, used CloverDX to reverse the situation.
Up to 80% of ProcessGold’s project time was taken up extracting data on ‘digital footprints’ from a huge variety of sources - from financial transaction logs to SAP records - and readying it for operational use.
Not only was the data ingestion a challenge, but both ProcessGold and their clients were unable to see the details of the process they were analyzing. This didn’t sit well with ProcessGold’s motto of transparency.
Reducing data prep time by 50%
With CloverDX, not only have they been able to reduce the extract and data prep time by more than 50%, but they are able to see the process on screen as a flow of components rather than trying to interpret and share long SQL scripts. For clients, who can often be putting sensitive information into the mining process, the transparency goes a long way to building trust.
Delivering results quickly
ProcessGold’s CEO was surprised how easy it was to get to results with CloverDX. He commented “I found CloverDX while just surfing online one evening. I downloaded it, watched two or three tutorials on YouTube….by the next morning I had my first graphs finished. I was thrilled with how easily it worked.”
