Recently, the Task Force on Process Mining released the Process Mining Manifesto. The manifesto is supported by 53 organizations and 77 process mining experts contributed to it. The active contributions from end-users, tool vendors, consultants, analysts, and researchers illustrate the growing relevance of process mining as a bridge between data mining and business process modeling. This paper summarizes the manifesto and explains why process mining is a highly relevant, but also very challenging, research area. This way we hope to stimulate the broader IS (Information Systems) and KM (Knowledge Management) communities to look at process-centric knowledge discovery. This paper summarizes the manifesto and is based on a paper with the same title that appeared in the December 2011 issue of SIGKDD Explorations (Volume 13, Issue 2).
