Demo: Digital Process Discovery – Process Mining

Our Process Performance System demo will show how to digitally discover and visualize processes using distributed application logs based on real life telco Order Management example. Our system is using data mining concepts and techniques to exploit raw and potentially unrelated process data and link them into business process models with variances. The result is digital process documentation that allows organizations to implement operational process execution monitoring, identification of potential problems and supports decision making on how to improve and thus progress to higher maturity level.
