Microsoft, which has spent significant resources over the past two years building out the process intelligence functionality of its Power Automate platform, this week unveiled a preview of those new capabilities.

The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant officially launched “process advisor” within its Power Automate RPA platform in June 2021 but supercharged its efforts earlier this year with the acquisition of Slovakian process mining platform Minit.

Announcing the preview, Microsoft said the addition of Minit brings deeper insights to bear enabling power Automate users to better map processes, identify which can be automated and find bottlenecks.

“While analysts use process advisor to get deep insights into how the processes are run, uncover the root cause analysis, and provide actionable inputs for the whole organization, business users including chief financial officers (CFOs), chief operating officers (COOs), chief revenue officers (CROs), and chief marketing officers (CMOs) use process mining dashboards to take a near real-time pulse on their organization,” wrote Justin Graham, general manager of process mining for Microsoft. “[That] can capture opportunities for process improvement and higher operational efficiency while mitigating undesired process outcomes.”

The preview is available to Power Automate customers with per-user licenses.
