Process Mining Café 25: Analysis Transformations

Process Mining Café 25

One thing we discussed in our Process Mining Café on Data Preparation is that you work with the data that you have. The next Process Mining Café this Wednesday will be about the fact that you can further shape the data to look at the process as you want it. These specific types of data transformations are called analysis transformations: Data transformations that you make with the specific goal to better analyze your process.

Rudi and I are joined by Scott Leslie from Evidant, who will tell us about the analysis transformations that he frequently makes. Based on two concrete examples, we show how the modifications improve the analysis possibilities step by step. Come join us, too!

The café takes place tomorrow, Wednesday, 11 October, at 15:00 CEST! (Check your timezone here). As always, there is no registration required. Simply point your browser to fluxicon.com/cafe when it is time. You can watch the café and join the discussion while we are on the air, right there on the café website.

Process Mining for Public Policy Evaluation

In this last Process Mining Café before our summer break, we spoke with Nuno Serra from Food4Sustainability CoLAB in Portugal.

If you are creative, you can find process mining data in unexpected places. Nuno showed us how he turned static data from an agricultural government funding program into a process view. After creating timestamps and activities from implicit information, he could analyze how farmers requested more or less aid over the years in the context of the development of their farms.

You can now watch the recording here if you missed the live broadcast or want to re-watch the café. Thanks again to Nuno and to all of you for joining us!
