What is Process Mining?
Process Mining is the visualization and analysis of business processes and one of the most important tools in the digital transformation of companies. It is based on the analysis of event logs, protocols of the digital processes in an IT system.
Process Discovery describes the data-based visualization of a process. The model is usually generated automatically from the event logs and shows the process flows as they actually occur in day-to-day operations.
In Conformance Checking, the actual process shown is compared with an existing target model of the same process. This comparison can be used to visualize skipped or unnecessarily repeated process steps or paths for instance. Simultaneously, the compliance can also be checked.
Another method of Process Mining is Model Enhancement. It describes the analysis of the process model to uncover optimization potentials. Such potentials can, for example, be derived from long processing or idle times. Identified bottlenecks or unforeseen process sequences are thus identified and eliminated.
Business Transformation through Digital Process Management
Process Mining is a versatile and effective way to support classic business process management. It not only simplifies and accelerates the documentation of processes, but also optimization and controlling, often even across different systems. This leaves more time for the core activities of your company. While the proven methods of process management remain the same, Process Mining enables the digital transformation of your company through effective automation.
