Watch Mieke Jans at Process Mining Camp 2015

There are just about 10 tickets left for this year’s Process Mining Camp. So, if you want to come, don’t wait and register right now!

To get us all into the proper camp spirit, we have started to release the videos from last year’s camp. If you have missed them before, check out the videos of Léonard Studer from the City of Lausanne, Willy van de Schoot from Atos International, and Joris Keizers from Veco.

The fourth speaker at Process Mining Camp 2015 was Mieke Jans from Hasselt University. Mieke was working for Deloitte Belgium for many years before she became an Assistent Professor at Hasselt University. As a process mining consultant, she learned about the challenges of extracting good process mining data out of ERP systems like SAP and Oracle first-hand. Getting some data out of an ERP system is relatively easy. But how do you make sure you extract the right data in the right way?

In her research, Mieke still works on the topic of extracting process mining data out of relational databases. At camp, she walked us through a step-by-step approach for creating a good event log. The starting point is to define the questions that you want to answer using process mining, because they have a direct impact on the way that the data needs to be extracted. There are several decisions that need to be made, and every decision has implications on the way that the data can be analyzed and should be interpreted.

Do you want to know which steps to follow when extracting process mining data out of your ERP or legacy system? Watch Mieke’s talk now!
