Process Mining Manifesto

The Process Mining Manifesto has been finalized and was published yesterday by the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining. The manifesto contains an overview and introduction to process mining, followed by guiding principles and challenges that the field is facing today:

Process mining is a relatively new paradigm and [..] therefore this manifesto catalogs some guiding principles and challenges for users of process mining techniques as well as researchers and developers that are interested in advancing the state-of-the-art.

The manifesto addresses many topics that we have been discussing here on our blog, such as how process mining relates to data mining and BI, what typical data quality problems are, and terminology issues around process mining. It provides a positioning of the topic, a nice characterization of the different maturity levels for event logs, and a glossary.

It is a very good starting point for anyone who wants to learn about process mining. You can download the manifesto here.
