Talk delivered at University of Tartu's Data Science Seminar, 17 February 2021. The talk explains the role of process mining as a self-service data analytics technology for business teams.

Process Mining in Action: Self-service data science for business teams

  1. 1. Process Mining in Action Self-service data science for business teams Marlon Dumas Professor of Information Systems @ University of Tartu Co-founder @ Apromore
  2. 2. Meet Tom - Customer Excellence Manager @ XYZ - Tom cares about customers, recurrent sales revenue, efficient service delivery, … - Every week, he has different questions: - Why did our churn rate increased last month? - Why did the number of customer complaints keep rising? - Why are our response times so slow even though we have added more staff? - Should I automate parts of my customer service process? Should I buy this brand new chatbot? Should I buy the brand new co- browsing platform I saw last week?
  3. 3. Tom’s company has tons of data in their information systems! - Customers’ web site visits - Customers’ orders - Customers’ complaints - The activity of salespeople - The activity of customer service staff - Your shipments, product returns, … - etc.
  4. 4. How to use these data? 4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9b9ZeU5aac • Nice option, very useful to address specific challenges • …but will you keep calling on them every day you need an insight? Hire a data science consultancy that delivers successfully on 85% of its projects • Possible in larger companies, but how much time it takes them to gain your domain & business knowledge? Hire a data scientist or data science team • Is it possible? Set up a self-service-system that allows you to analyze the data yourself.
  5. 5. Digital Footprint Every process leaves digital footprints (transactions) Data Preparation Data is prepared (e.g. multiple datasets are merged) Event Collection Transactional data is collected from enterprise systems and other sources Process Analysis Process mining algorithms are used to extract process models and other process analytics.

  17. 17. Case 1: Process mining @ Nordic financial company • Context: Mid-sized European payment systems provider operating in multiple countries • Goal: Analysis of customer onboarding and customer support processes (B2B sales) • Questions: Why are we performing in terms of customer satisfaction and resolution times better in some countries and for some customer segments and not for others? • Data sources: SAP CRM and ServiceNow, centralized via a data warehouse solution • Timeframe: 8 weeks of data extraction & analysis, continued use aftewards
  18. 18. Positive deviance Practices prevalent in best-performing countries. For example, we found that performing some activities earlier in the process lead to better customer feedback. Negative deviance Practices associated with poor customer feedback. For example, certain rework loops caused by incorrect data collection (for a type of customer) lead to delays. Outcomes (after ca. 6 months) • Process changes leading to reductions in customer onboarding time of several days in lower-performing countries • Changes leading to reductions in rework loops, increase in NPS • Analysts are able to perform regular review of the process in days, instead weeks (more than 3 x speed-up) Case 1: Process mining @ Nordic financial company
  19. 19. Case 2: Process mining @ Australian pension fund Identifying Inefficiencies in the Claims Process Identifying Complexity of the Claims Process Augmenting the Speed to Analysis Proactive Conformance/Compliance Analysis Variant Analysis Showcase the Flexibility of the Tool Model the new Claims Process Validate the Cost to Serve
  20. 20. Case 2: Process mining @ Australian pension fund 82% of all pension claims cases were following the “happy path”, i.e. were compliant with the process model (straight-through processing). But the 82% only accounted for 2 out of the total of 474 case variants, suggesting there were various non- compliant cases.
  21. 21. Case 2: Process mining @ Australian pension fund The remaining 18% of cases had various errors, rework loops, or were withdrawn at different stages of the pension claims process.
  22. 22. Case 2: Process mining @ Australian pension fund Significant expected ROI  Estimated annual ROI of over AUD  Cost savings of AUD 150K during project phase Increased Speed to Process Improvement  2.6 times faster compared to traditional PI approaches Increased Process Efficiency  Expected process efficiency gains between 5-30% 1 2 3
  23. 23. Case 3: Process mining @ Cineca Fast facts • One of the major EU computational centers • 600 IT staff • 2000+ requests per month Processes analyzed • Change request process • Help request process • Fault handling process • Variants per geographical region and university served • 10 months of data
  24. 24. Case 3: Process mining @ Cineca Adoption of positive deviances • Replicating behavior of top performing offices • Training of IT service operators Changes in ticket management system • Identified reasons for some types of bounce-backs between teams • Alerts for real-time monitoring of certain state changes
