PhD working on Process Mining in SAP

The Architecture of Information Systems (AIS) of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e) and SAP AG are looking for a PhD working on Process Mining in SAP

The AIS group is one of the leading groups in the exciting new field of process mining. Process mining techniques focus on process discovery (extracting process models from event logs), conformance checking (comparing normative models with the reality recorded in event logs), and extension (extending models based on event logs). The work resulted in the development of the ProM framework that is widely used in industry and serves as a platform for new process mining techniques used by research groups all over the globe. Moreover, many of the techniques developed in the context of ProM have been embedded in commercial tools. 

Currently, there is a vacancy for a PhD working on a new and challenging process mining project in collaboration with SAP AG, the world leader in enterprise software and software-related services.

Based on market capitalization, SAP is the world's third largest independent software manufacturer. SAP is interested in adding process mining capabilities to their software. Note with the development of HANA and various BI tools, SAP already invested in in-memory database technology and business analytics. However, to extend their analytics capabilities and to benefit from the omnipresence of SAP data, the project "Methods, Architecture, and Tools in Operational Process Mining" was started.

The project' s research will include a detailed analysis of data typically available in enterprise systems, evaluation of existing techniques in such settings, and the enhancement of process mining techniques. The collaborative research project has been defined to advance the state-of-the- art in process mining and to make process mining better applicable and repeatable in an SAP context.
