Exploring the Difference Between Process Mining and Task Mining

In the realm of digital transformation, two powerful tools, Process Mining and Task Mining, play distinct yet synergistic roles in reshaping business processes.


Process Mining: Illuminating the Operational Landscape


Imagine embarking on an analytical journey into the heart of your business processes. Process Mining, an illuminating discipline, leverages log data to discover, monitor, and improve processes in their authentic operational state. Here's a snapshot of its key characteristics:


  • Log Data Requirement: The key to unlocking insights lies in the detailed log data.

  • Rigid Process Model: A predefined, rigid process model is the foundation for analysis.

  • SME Involvement: Collaboration with Process Subject Matter Experts ensures a holistic approach.

  • Continuous Monitoring: It’s a long-term program, providing ongoing insights for sustainable improvements.

  • Ideal for L2 & L3 Analysis: Perfect for in-depth, fact-based analysis, particularly on levels 2 and 3.

  • Quality Control & Compliance: A valuable tool for maintaining quality standards and compliance.


Task Mining: Deciphering Employee Workflow Dynamics


On the other hand, Task Mining takes a hands-on approach by recording user activities to gain nuanced insights into task handling. Here's the breakdown:


  • User Activity Recording: The initiation point involves recording user activities, and capturing clicks, scrolls, timestamps, and screenshots.

  • Dynamic Process Model: The process model evolves dynamically during the analysis of user recordings.

  • SME Collaboration: Involvement of Process SMEs adds context and depth to the analysis.

  • One-off & Purpose-led: Task Mining operates as a one-off, purpose-led project, making it efficient and focused.

  • Fact-based Analysis: A valuable tool for gaining insights through fact-based process analysis.

  • Ideal for Automation Opportunities: Uncover opportunities for automation based on user activity insights.
