Traditional Process Mining

Coworkers Strategizing Together On A Whiteboard In An Office

Process mining is an intricate system where the goal is to turn data into actionable insights.  Traditionally, Process mining follows a three-step process to make your data useable for your organization:

Step 1) Ensuring that you have correct data and preparing the data.

Step 2) Visualizing the process flow.

Step 3) Analyzing your data for insights.

Depending on your process, step 1 can have multiple sub-steps.  You may have to acquire additional resources and need support from management.  Another potential sub-step can happen when looping in relevant stakeholders depending on your project type.  Step 2 can also take a while if you are visualizing the process flow(s) manually.  But, by utilizing Appian Process Mining, you and your organization will be

able to focus on the valuable insights, not on creating the process flow and gathering additional resources.
