Two More Speakers at Process Mining Camp 2018!

Are you coming to Process Mining Camp on 19 and 20 June this year? Tickets are going fast and some of the workshops have already sold out. So, if you have not registered yet make sure to sign up now.

Today, we are excited to announce two additional speakers for this year’s Process Mining Camp!

Wim Kouwenhoven from the City of Amsterdam will share how process mining has helped him in his role as a program manager and Wil van der Aalst will talk about the new skill set for process and data scientists in his closing keynote.

Take a look at the full camp program here.

Practice Talk by Wim Kouwenhoven – City of Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Amsterdam is well-known as the capital of the Netherlands. The city itself has a population of more than 850,000, with about 1.5 million people living in the entire Amsterdam city region. The municipality is responsible for defining and enforcing local policies regarding areas like poverty, taxes, sports, parking, and many more.

Wim Kouwenhoven is a program manager for the financial function of the municipiality. Change management often plays a major role in the programs he is involved in. This was also the case with the introduction of process mining. Wim will share the change traits that were critical for them to get most out of their process mining projects, so that they could actually improve the financial function and get the city of Amsterdam on the move.

Closing Keynote by Wil van der Aalst – RWTH Aachen University, Germany

With innovation and research continuously advancing, professionals are under pressure to expand their knowledge and keep up. BPM practitioners, for instance, need to apply a more data-driven approach when analyzing processes. The same applies to Lean Six Sigma professionals, IT Auditors, Business Analysts, etc. Meanwhile, data scientists are often still focused too much on flat data rather than behavioral data. Process-oriented data analysis techniques like process mining can help both groups to bridge the gap to analyze processes based on data. Moreover, ethics and privacy questions need to be addressed with an ever-increasing urgency.

What are the skills that old and new professionals need to develop today to be ready for the new data science economy? Wil’s keynote will give you an overview about the spectrum of skills needed, and tell you how you can develop yourself further in these areas.

Wil van der Aalst is the founding father of process mining. He started to work on workflow mining, as it used to be called, way back when nobody even thought the necessary data existed. As a full professor at RWTH Aachen University, Wil has supervised countless PhD and Master students on the topic and is head of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining. He is the author of the book Process Mining: Data Science in Action and the creator of the popular Process Mining MOOC.

If you can’t attend Process Mining Camp this year, you should sign up for the Camp mailing list to receive the presentations and video recordings afterwards.
