Process Mining in news website

Hi everyone.

I have log files from some popular news website from Norway. I want to apply process mining approach on this log file. I see the data contains some fields like time stamp, devices it is from, browser, eventId, news url .


I am still confused how process mining can be used to analyze this data to prove useful for business intelligence. Any suggestions or further hints would be great.

thanks
Suresh

    Dear 'dr.code'skm',

    I would suggest to read up on process mining basics first to get an idea what you can do with your data.

  • Dear JBuijs,

    Thanks for reply. I am indeed reading process mining book and looking at archived course at coursera.

    Yet, I really dont see any research done for using process mining for news website. I wanted to get some suggestions for what type of data can be mined from these logs. In news website, there is hardly any process, users read the news articles and then goes to another articles and so on. Will these logs be of any use?

    Or to be specific, can process mining be useful in this case?

    Hi,

    I believe process mining has been applied to web logs before, and I remember reading of a case study or two even (maybe on the Fluxicon blog?). I'm not sure though.

    In any way, you will have a case of a spaghetti process so might want to read the book section on this type of process on how to handle this.
