Podcast – Process Mining: The Hipster Child Of the Process Industry
Your favorite podcast crew were guests on Ansgar Bittermann’s “Pocket Guide AI” AI podcast, and we had the opportunity to speak about one of our favorite topics in front of a live panel, which asked good questions.
“Today we talk with Roland Woldt, Washington, DC, and J-M Erlendson, Toronto. Both are working at Software AG as Business Process and Transformation Architects and are also running their own website (and podcast) at whatsyourbaseline.com, where they demystify and explain enterprise architecture.
Our topic today is process mining. As Roland puts it: like footprints in the snow executing processes leave process traces in application systems. And with process mining we can analyze these process traces to discover the underlying processes. We will learn how this works in reality, what a company needs to use this successfully and how it is connected to artificial intelligence. We will also talk about process lifecycle, process mining analysis and how it is connected to task mining and RPA.”
