Would you like to know what Process Mining is, what you can use it for (within the Software Development), what the differences between commercial tools and open source are and how the interaction between both worlds works?

Thursday March 17th, Prof.dr.ir Wil van der Aalst (TUE), gives a lecture about Process Mining on March 17th during the Software Industry Conference.

Read the introduction of his talk below:

Big Software on the Run: In Vivo Software Analytics Based on Process Mining

Software-related problems have an incredible impact on society, organizations, and users that increasingly rely on information technology. Since software is evolving and operates in a changing environment, one cannot anticipate all problems at design-time. Hence, we propose to analyze software “in vivo”, i.e., we study systems in their natural habitat rather than through testing or software design. We use process mining as a tool for such in vivo software analytics. Process discovery techniques can be used to capture the real behavior of software. Conformance checking techniques can be used to spot deviations. The alignment of models and real software behavior can be used to predict problems related to performance or conformance. Recent developments make this possible. This keynote provides pointers to the state-of-the-art in process mining and introduces the “Big Software on the Run”.
