Process Mining & Process Modeling Combined

Anne presenting process mining in Cologne

This week we were speaking at a process practitioner conference in Germany. As usually, process mining is a topic that makes people enthusiastic very quickly.

At the same time, if you are mostly working in process modeling initiatives, you may–as people did at the conference in Germany–ask about the possibility to bring your process mining results into a process modeling environment. The advantages of such environments are that you can change the models, add additional information about process goals, manual steps, and customize the presentation to match your corporate style.

Last Friday, we were invited on a webinar by the BPM in Practice initiative co-organizer Jrgen Pitschke from BCS. The topic was to combine process mining with process modeling, and we were showcasing the new integration between Disco and the Trisotech digital enterprise suite. Denis Gagn, Trisotech’s founder, gave a demo of how Disco process maps can be imported into their BPMN modeler, and how they can be used as an accelerator to quick-start the process discovery and ’to-be’ design initiatives.

Here is the webinar recording:

If you have seen me give a process mining demo before, you might want to jump to Denis’ demo part at 38m into the webinar here.

Disco users who are looking to import mined process maps into a dedicated modeling tool to leverage their process mining results in a corporate documentation environment will be excited about this integration. Try it out for yourself using the demo versions available from the Disco and Trisotech websites.
