What is Process Mining?

How does it work?

The first step is to establish a real time link to your key data sources, extract that raw data and convert them into an event log (coming from ERPs, CRMs, SRMs, SCMs, PLMs, web sites, mobile apps, IVRs, etc). This provides data-driven insights into actual processes.

The before mentioned event-logs provide a level of detail that could never be provided by whiteboards, interviews, and process mapping software. In this stage, you will discover the root cause of inefficiencies and deviations from the desired situation, but it also enables you to find optimal pathways.
