-The Architecture ​of Information Systems (AIS) research group investigates methods, techniques and tools for the design and analysis ​of process-aware information systems, i.e., systems that support business processes (workflows) ​in organizationsWe are not only interested ​in these information systems and their architecturebut also try to model and analyze ​the business processes ​and organizations they support+One of the foundations ​of computer science today is //data//The omnipresence of increasingly large volumes of data has become a key driver for many innovations and new research directions ​in computer scienceSpecifically ​in information systems, data - and the analytics developed on top of this data - have transformed the field from expert-driven to evidence-basedwhich in turn massively broadens the applicability of results ​to more and larger contexts. Our main mission is to bridge ​the gap between process science (BPM, WFM, formal methods, etc.) and data science. This explain the focus on process mining

-Our main mission is to bridge the gap between process science (BPM, WFM, formal ​methods, etc.) and data scienceThis explain ​the focus on process ​mining.+The research concentrates on formalisms for modeling and methods ​to discover ​and analyze modelsFundamental to the research group at the Eindhoven University of Technology is the choice for Petri nets as the language to precisely describe ​process ​dynamics also in complex settings at a foundational level. The choice for this language is what distinguishes our research group from research groups in more industrial engineering oriented information systems groups.
  
-The research concentrates on formalisms for modeling and methods to discover and analyze models. On the one hand formal methods are being used, e.g., the group has a long tradition in Petri-net modeling and analysis. On the other hand, we are interested in modeling languages widely used in industry (EPCs, UML, BPMN, BPEL, etc.). In contrast to many other research groups we do not accept a model as an objective starting point, i.e., we also try to discover process models through process mining and check the conformance of models based on reality.  +The AIS group tries to make research results accessible by providing (open-source) software. ​Many advanced process analysis tools and techniques exist today in over 25 commercial packages that were developed in the AIS group over the last 15 years. Our prototyping framework ​[[http://​prom.sourceforge.net|ProM]] (process mining and process analysis) ​illustrates ​that the problems of tomorrow’s practice are the driving force behind the development of new theory, methods, and tools by AIS.
