Watch Léonard Studer at Process Mining Camp 2015

Are you getting ready for this year’s Process Mining Camp? If you haven’t registered yet, make sure to secure your ticket for 10 June. The early bird tickets were gone within less than five days, so be quick!

To get us all into the proper camp spirit, we will be releasing the videos from last year’s camp over the next weeks. The first speaker at Process Mining Camp 2015 was Léonard Studer from the City of Lausanne. As a process analyst, Léonard helps people at the municipality to better organize their work.

At camp, Léonard told us about a project, where they analyzed a complex construction permit process. Construction permit processes are notoriously complicated, because there are so many parties and rules involved. For example, the City of Lausanne is regulated by 27 different laws from Swiss federal law, cantonal law, and communal regulation.

In his presentation, Léonard did not only tell us all about the project and what came out of it, but he also did a deep dive into the overall approach, the enormous data challenges they were facing, and the tools that he used to resolve them. He gave an honest talk with lots of practical details. In his introduction, he puts it best:

Process mining itself is not a problem anymore. When I do process mining live in front of people they believe that they can do it themselves. What is difficult now is to get all these little things around your process mining project arranged correctly. This is a talk I will give you without any shame, I will not be blowing any smoke, I will not be bragging. I just want to tell you what I really did. I will also give you some tricks around process mining that may be useful to you.

Have you ever wondered what a real-life process mining project looks like? Grab a drink and watch Léonard’s talk right here!
