Lights, Camera, Action — Process Mining!

Towards the end of last month’s process mining camp, I found myself in a small group, and the conversation circled in on the question: “What is the number one obstacle holding back Process Mining?” A number of topics were brought up, from the difficulties of getting data in some settings, to organizational barriers. I don’t think there is a single best answer, but my personal favourite would still be: Most people don’t even know that Process Mining exists, or what it is exactly.

Spreading the word about Process Mining is a goal that is near and dear to our hearts here at Fluxicon. We have teamed up with the Process Mining Group of Wil van der Aalst at Eindhoven University of Technology, and we have produced a short video clip. Our video introduces the basics of Process Mining, and why you would want to use it. We wanted to make it understandable and comprehensive, but also short and sweet1.

Have a look, and see whether we succeeded:

We would like to thank Wil and his group for a great collaboration, and of course our very smart and talented friends at 908video in Berlin, who did the actual work and heavy lifting!

We hope that you like our video, and that it will be a conversation starter and a way to share the magic of Process Mining with your friends and colleagues2. Let us know what you think about it right below in the comments!

  1. Because, let’s face it: Nobody likes to watch long, boring videos. ↩︎
