Disco 2.6

Software Update

We are happy to announce that we have just released Disco 2.6.

This release improves the performance, fidelity, and the reliability of timeline charts in the statistics view of Disco. We have also expanded the selection of holiday calendar presets in TimeWarp, and loading CSV files should be even more reliable now.

We recommend that you update at your earliest convenience. Like every release of Disco, this update fixes a number of bugs and improves the general performance and stability.

Thank you all for your feedback, bug reports, and suggestions. We could not do this without you, and we hope you like Disco 2.6!

So That Was Process Mining Camp 2020!

Process Mining Camp 2020

Process Mining Camp was a lot of fun this year. Thank you all who stopped by and joined us at the campfire!

We particularly liked the discussions in the community this year. Having a full day to think about your questions allowed more people to jump in and participate. And the campfire Slack community as a place for ongoing discussions allowed everyone to talk to each other — even during the presentations.

We also had more time for the discussions with the speakers on our virtual stage. It was nice to come together with the presenters of the previous day again in our daily Process Mining Café (below you can see a screenshot of the Café session with Carmen and Noortje from Total Gas and Power). It allowed us to go over the feedback and questions in a more structured way in this whole new follow-up format.

A very nice daily surprise for us (and for all the campers!) were the contributions by Ferry Timp. Ferry is an auditor and process miner and, at the same time, an amazing talent in creating live drawings from a presentation or discussion. Below, you can see an excerpt from his visual notes of Day 6 1.

A big thanks to all the speakers for their great presentations and to all of you for joining us at this year’s camp. We really enjoyed hanging out with you, and we look forward to seeing you again very soon!
