Data models

Data models are the basis to all Celonis analyses. In a data model you define which data can be accessed from the analyses built on top of it. Data models are collections of tables (e.g. information about a Purchase-to-Pay (P2P) process structured within several tables).

A data model can hold tables from different sources such as flat files or different database sources.
