Should the data be extracted from my IS?
No, this is not mandatory.
In the context of a diagnosis, it is recommended that you extract the data and then share it with PwC using our secure platform or your own.
If you are focused on continuous improvement, you can connect a Process Mining solution directly to your systems.
The library of standard connectors speeds up the data, model and dashboard preparation phases.
How is the data extracted?
There are two possibilities:
- You carry out the extraction from your information system: you have the technical capacity to extract the data (IT department) and thus provide them directly to us according to the business specifications (scope of the analysis).
- PwC intervenes in the extraction: we offer you a tool (PwC Xtract) to extract the data. It is an application that automates transactions and runs directly in your ERP.
In the context of an extraction, how is the data transmitted?
We have a dedicated application: Connect.
It is a highly secure and certified file deposit and collaboration platform. A dedicated PwC/Client space will be created to link your teams with ours. This application is regularly used with our key account clients with sensitive data.
