Process Mining News — July / August 2014
Every 1-2 months, we create this list of collected process mining web links and events in the process mining news (now also on the blog, with extra material in the e-mail edition).
Here are some blog articles that you may have missed:
Last month was all about Process Mining Camp, which took place on 18 June in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. You can find some photos and a summary of the day here.
Prior to camp, we held fire-side chat interviews with most of the speakers about different process mining topics:
Interview with Frank van Geffen, Rabobank. Frank gave a practice talk and a workshop on ‘How to get management buy-in for process mining’. He also participated in the panel.
Interview with Johan Lammers, Statistics Netherlands. Johan shared his experience from using process mining at CBS in a practice talk.
Interview with Shaun Moran, CDAnalytics. Shaun gave a workshop on ‘Process mining and customer experience’ at Process Mining camp.
Interview with Antonio Valle, G2. Antonio gave a workshop on ‘Process Mining and Lean’.
Interview with Nicholas Hartman, CKM Advisors. Nick gave a practice talk and held a workshop on ‘Data science tools that complement process mining’. Nick also participated in the panel.
Interview with John Müller, ING. John shared his experience on applying process mining to customer journey processes in a practice talk.
Interview with Erik Davelaar, KPMG. Erik told us about three different process mining projects from an auditing perspective.
A special issue on process mining was produced by the Dutch magazine ‘Informatie’. You can read more about this special issue and download the PDF from our article in the magazine here.
Furthermore, an article about process mining in IT Service Management processes was published in the current issue of the itSMF magazine (in German). You can download the PDF version of the article here.
