New Knowledge About Old Systems

Last week’s Process Mining Café was all about legacy systems. Two veterans of the trace, Steve Kilner and Derek Russel, joined us for a discussion on the role process mining can play in better understanding, and improving, legacy systems. You can now watch the recording here.

Our session started with a primer on what legacy systems are in the first place: Old systems that are often poorly understood and critical at the same time. Process mining can help to understand both how these systems are actually used, as well as how the processes that are run on them can be improved.

We also discussed the different approaches to get process mining data from these old systems: Some may have existing logs that can be used. Other setups need to be instrumented or otherwise observed.

Here are the links that we mentioned during the session:

Thanks again, Derek and Steve, for joining us!
