Celonis launches Celonis Labs dedicated to the “art of the impossible”

Celonis has opened its new innovation facility, Celonis Labs, a dedicated innovation centre created to advance and accelerate disruptive new capabilities. It combines operational R&D with free thinking about the ‘art of the possible.’ Celonis Labs teams will be experimenting with new ideas and emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality.

“My ultimate mission is to raise Celonis’ customer value to the power of 10. Not only thinking 10 years ahead, but also amplifying our execution management innovations by a factor of 10,” said newly appointed Eugenio Cassiano, SVP of Celonis Labs. “Celonis Labs will focus on moonshots, experiments, and R&D to unlock the world’s processes, saving billions of dollars in corporate inefficiencies, and pioneering the shift to a more sustainable future.”

“Eugenio is one of those people who can easily travel into the future, anticipate the trends, and drive innovations that will solve tomorrow’s problems,” said Alex Rinke, co-CEO and co-founder of Celonis. “We are thrilled to have Eugenio on board to lead Celonis Labs, to get ahead of  the business execution challenges of the future and to invent the solutions required to solve them.”
