Process Mining Training – Autumn 2013

Disco!

Big Data is a trend that has been steadily gaining importance over the year. How can you get value out of your existing data in a way that supports your business process improvement initiatives? How can data analytics help your company to become a process-oriented organization?

Process mining is a new data analytics technology that focuses on processes. With process mining, you can make your actual processes visible and measurable. By automatically discovering process maps that show how these processes have been really running, and where the bottlenecks are, process mining is your fast track to meaningful process control. Instead of just gut feeling, you can now have reliable proof that you can show to your boss and get the support you need.

For consultants, process mining represents a powerful and visual tool to show your clients their own processes, in a matter of seconds. Help your customers become data-driven, and make your engagements more valuable by focusing your improvement initiatives on the right points of action.

Our upcoming process mining training is right for you if:

If you have used process mining before, then you know how easy it is to get started. Nevertheless, there are numerous questions that pop up quickly once you want to start using process mining in a real project:

We at Fluxicon love process mining, and we have been working in this field already for more than ten years. After finishing our PhDs with Prof. Wil van der Aalst at TU Eindhoven, we founded Fluxicon to build Disco, the best process mining software for professionals. Our mission is to spread the word about process mining, and to bring the community closer together. We regularly write about process mining on our blog and in our newsletter, and we organize Process Mining Camp, the annual conference for process mining professionals.

From working with our Disco users and the process mining newcomers in the community, we continously see the questions they ask and the things they miss when they start out. In this course, we put all our experience together and give you the essentials that you need to know to be ready for using process mining in practice.

We have all seen too many courses where dozens of participants receive an overwhelming amount of abstract lectures. The examples given are clearly made up and idealized. As a result, you either fall asleep, or you can’t ask your questions, because that annoying guy in the first row always dominates the discussion. And to top it off, you have that sneaking suspicion that your lecturer has started learning about the topic only a few weeks ago, and has never done a real project himself.

In this course, we work interactively in small groups, to make sure that every participant leaves fully prepared, with all questions answered. We show real examples and give you more than enough time to practice hands-on. Rather than assuming only “good weather data”, we get down to the actual data quality check and data cleaning tasks that you often need to do in practice. We give you our tried-and-tested project methodology that guides you through the necessary steps. Your course will be given by Dr. Anne Rozinat, who is not only a noted academic expert on process mining, but has more than seven years of experience in practical process mining projects.

What you will learn:

Theoretical knowledge is important, but it is only through practical application that we learn the best. That is why, in this course, you will solve real problems on your own laptop, using our powerful process mining software Disco.

And when the course day is over, you are only just getting started with process mining:

You can sign up for this course at different dates in November this year (choose the desired date in the Ticket Information head on the training website):

Update: New 2014 training dates are available here

We have a very limited number of seats available, since we want to keep the training groups small, intimate, and productive. Sign up now, and make sure you don’t miss this opportunity!

PS: If these dates don’t work for you, or if you prefer an in-house training for your organization, please get in touch with us at anne@fluxicon.com.
