Process Mining as the Bridge between Process Science and Data Science

Process mining bridges the gap between traditional model-based process analysis (e.g., simulation and other business process management techniques) and data-centric analysis techniques such as machine learning and data mining. Process mining seeks the confrontation between event data and process models, and should be in the toolbox of any data scientist, consultant, manager, or auditor. This technology has become available only recently, but can be applied to all operational processes in healthcare, logistics, production, customer care, banking, insurance, etc. This course explains what process mining is and how to get started.
