Disco is Coming to Campus!

A bit more than a year ago we started the Fluxicon Academic Initiative for Process Mining to give something back to the academic community. In this program, we offer free software licenses and process mining lecture materials to our academic partners.

By now already more than 60 universities are active in the academic initiative, which shows that Process Mining is a growing field of interest for researchers and students all around the world. Just look at the map below to see in how many different places process mining research and education is taking a hold!

Many of you have asked us whether we can include our new process mining software Disco in the academic initiative as well. And there are good reasons for that:

  1. Disco makes it even easier to get started with process mining. Beautiful process maps, process map animation, and powerful log filters help you to explore your process in an intuitive way. It’s ideal for teaching, because it lets students experience the power of process mining without the technical headaches.
  2. For researchers, Disco is super fast and fully compatible with ProM due to its support of the event log standards MXML (ProM 5 and ProM 6) and XES (ProM 6), which makes it the perfect companion if you want to test your own algorithms based on real-life logs.

So, today we are excited to announce that staff members and students from our partner universities can now request free academic licenses for Disco. Also the lecture material will be updated soon.

If your university is already an academic partner, here is how you can get your Disco license:

  • You are new to Disco? – Simply download Disco form the official product page. When you install it, make sure to use your official university email address. You will be prompted to request an academic license.
  • You have already installed Disco? – If you have registered with your official university email address, you are offered to request an academic license the next time you start Disco. If you haven’t, you can switch by clicking on your email address in the upper right corner of Disco. Simply re-register with your university email and request your license.
