Speaking for myself, I have heard a lot over the years about data mining (used for discovering patterns in large data sets). Being a business process manager in an operational environment, I am constantly looking at new and better methods to uncover potential areas of improvements and contribute to decision making. This still makes the use of data analysis crucial, but the current stage of the project is not really demanding analysis to discovering patterns in large data sets yet to study the behavior of the systems or its users. I would say that data mining is a bridge too far. However, this week I came across process mining while catching up on some reading. Process mining basically is that bridge between data mining and business process management. Today, I will share with you what I have learned so far and why this could be interesting for you too.
