Abstract

Businesses are becoming increasingly globally interconnected and need to continuously adapt to global market changes and trends in order to stay competitive. Business processes are fundamental parts and drivers of these globally connected organizations which is why their management, analysis, and optimization are of utmost importance. Discovering and understanding the actual execution flow of processes deployed in your organization is an important enabler for these tasks. However, this has become increasingly difficult since business processes are now mostly distributed over different systems, highly dynamic, and may produce thousands of events per second which may conform to a number of different formats. These particular challenges are currently not specifically accounted for in the research field of Process Discovery. In order to address these challenges, this paper presents a concept for scalable dynamic process discovery, which is a scalable solution for identifying and keeping up with the evolution of dynamic, collaborative business processes. Furthermore, a framework for this concept is proposed along with the requirements and implementation details for the involved components and models.
