Process Miner of the Year 2018!

At the end of Process Mining Camp this year, we had the pleasure to hand out the annual Process Miner of the Year award for the third time.

Our goal with the Process Miner of the Year awards is to highlight process mining initiatives that are inspiring, captivating, and interesting. Projects that demonstrate the power of process mining, and the transformative impact it can have on the way organizations go about their work and get things done. We hope that learning about these great process mining projects will inspire all of you and show newcomers to the field how powerful process mining can be.

We picked the case study from the university hospital Universitario Lucus Augusti (HULA) as the winner, because they could clearly demonstrate how much potential there is to complement clinical medical research with an analysis of the process perspective via process mining. After tackling the inevitable complexity of any healthcare process through a combination of simplification strategies, they were able to reveal bottlenecks that, once removed, can lead to a faster cancer diagnosis.

Congratulations to David Baltar Boilève and the whole team from HULA!

Learn more about how HULA managed to first simplify and then analyze their process by reading their case study here (a PDF version is available here).

To signify the achievement of winning the Process Miner of the Year award, we commissioned a unique, one-of-a-kind trophy. The Process Miner of the Year 2018 trophy is sculpted from two joined, solid blocks of plum and robinia wood, signifying the raw log data used for Process Mining. A vertical copper inlay points to the value that Process Mining can extract from that log data, like a lode of ore embedded in the rocks of a mine.

It’s a unique piece of art that could not remind us in any better way of the wonderful possibilities that process mining opens up for all of us every day.

Become the Process Miner of the Year 2019!

There are now so many more applications of process mining than there were just a few years ago. With the Process Miner of the Year competition, we want to stimulate companies to showcase their greatest projects and get recognized for their success.
