Paradigm Shift in Process Mining

Transparency is good, better processes are great


Darmstadt, 24 September 2018. When Microsoft Excel entered the market in the 90s, spreadsheet programs were taught in Computer Science. Today, Microsoft Excel is the world’s most popular spreadsheet program. Nearly every workstation in a company is equipped with Microsoft Excel. The program is used by millions of users who have never undergone data science training. The latest versions of Microsoft Excel use machine learning to analyze data in Excel spreadsheets to create pivot tables and charts of trends and other useful information. According to Microsoft, Artificial Intelligence in the digital workstation Microsoft Office 365 is already part of everyday life for more than one billion people.

What does this have to do with Process Mining? We believe that Artificial Process Intelligence will become a fundamental skill for millions of knowledge workers around the world. Employees know the company processes best. They recognize process problems the fastest. Impacts of process problems hit them first. That’s why PAF has integrated Artificial Process Intelligence (APRIL) into the Microsoft Office 365 digital workplace. Knowledge gained from process data is converted directly into optimization measures by starting actions where process problems arise and where they can be eliminated directly – at the digital workplace.
