The Process Mining Foundation: Discover and Map Processes

ABBYY Timeline extracts data from any combination of IT systems and recreates end-to-end processes. Automatically visualize process flow, bottlenecks, and path variations.

Discover Your "As-Is" Processes with Process Mining

We’re always updating and expanding analysis tools to make it easier for you to discover and visualize every variation of your processes, even ones that you may not have known were happening!


As soon as your data is loaded you can observe the key profile metrics for your business processes.

Timeline Analysis

Visualize your end-to-end process from reconstructed process instances even across multiple back-end systems.

Schema Analysis

Automatically visualize process schemas in both structured and ad hoc or case management business process environments.

Path Analysis

Easily compare variations and highlight outliers that may be costing you more than expected, or introducing operational risk.

Visualize Your Processes in Near Real-Time

No matter how many business intelligence tools, dashboards, or reports you have – they simply can’t recreate an end-to-end view of the “as-is” process happening in your business.

Traditional methods of Business Process Modelling (BPM) are costly and time-consuming. They can be influenced by subjective opinions or simply the absence of information. ABBYY Timeline automatically Discovers  “as-is” process execution and presents an intuitive visualization that you can easily explore and analyze. Key process metrics are automatically created and presented in the Overview

ABBYY Timeline recreates end-to-end processes as an interactive model (a “Process Digital Twin”) from event data stored within the software systems used to operate your business. The Timeline Analysis view provides an accurate picture of how employees are performing tasks, rather than the idealized model of what they are supposed to be doing.

Unlike traditional Visio diagrams or manual models, ABBYY Timeline animates process flow within the Schema Analysis, presenting potential bottlenecks or slowed process flows. Understanding how processes really work makes it easier to target and implement impactful changes.

The Steps to Discovering Your Processes

Extract Data

Event data is extracted – without integration – from any combination of enterprise or departmental software systems  and uploaded into TimelinePI.

Process and Map Events

Load the data and visualize your process; its that easy. Only the three fields are needed to get started (adding more creates richer contest): a unique identifier, Timestamp and an event name.

Create "As-is" Visualization

The data is converted into timelines where you can observe the “who, what when and where” of process execution, including relevant subprocesses.
