This book is a bible for process mining. if you were to read one book about process mining, I would recommend this. It does a deep dive into the subject covering various applications and use cases. It refers to other resources (which are free) that complement the book. Other resources Processmining.org ProM tools Slides that are supported by the book (find it on processmining.org) Those who prefer interactive learning can check out Process Mining course on coursera Almost 90% of the resources that I have referred to trace back to Eindhoven Netherlands. Wil van der Aalst seems to be the father of process mining
This author also has a class on Coursera. org. The book is a companion to that class (and to his other classes at his university). Excellent detail on Process Mining via Data Mining and custom techniques. I am very happy with the purchase.
This is currently my bible for Process Mining and I absorb and cherish each page of this book. I use this as a reference and handbook in my research studies. Despite released in 2011, I believe the content is still relevant today!
As a Business Community, we are finally addressing the Business Processes: How people Interact with each other and the Equipment and IT Systems that they use to achieve our Daily Goals.
The Challenge is that very few people really understand the "Wider Scope". Process Mining is a Technique to Determine the Actual Interactions. Once we can Generalize and Understand those Actions, we can improve.
I like the fact that ProM can import and export BPMN 2.0 Compliant XML. BPMN 2.0 Swim Lane Diagrams enables one to Understand each Role in a Holistic Sense and Petri-Nets to analyze them mathematiclly. So, one has the blend of Business Focus and analytical Focus.
Bought this book after completing the course on coursera as a reference book. It is proving to be very useful in providing pointers to resources out there and for using some of the tools to shape data.
I have read many papers and articles on process mining, and whenever I see that the author's name is Wil van der Aalst I know I am about to learn from someone who is both a master of process mining and a master of teaching.
The thinking and writing are always crystal clear, focused, succinct and well-referenced. Unlike so many gurus of technical subjects, he is not driven to display his knowledge, but rather, like any great teacher, he is driven to help the student learn.
Some day I would like to meet this fellow and thank him for his talent and thoughtful effort.
