In this paper the so-called Event Cube is introduced, a multidimensional data structure that can hold information about all business dimensions. Like the data cubes of online analytic processing (OLAP) systems, the Event Cube can be used to improve the business analysis quality by providing immediate results under different levels of abstraction. An exploratory analysis of the application of process mining on multidimensional process data is the focus of this paper. The feasibility and potential of this approach is demonstrated through some practical examples.
