Recent years have witnessed the ability to gather an enormous amount of data in a large number of domains. Also in the field of business process management, there exists an urgent need to beneficially use these data to retrieve actionable knowledge about the actual way of working in the context of a certain business process. The research field concerned is process mining, which can be defined as a whole family of analysis techniques for extracting knowledge from information system event logs. In this paper, we present a solution strategy to leverage traditional process discovery techniques in the flexible environment of incident management processes. In such environments, it is typically observed that single model discovery techniques are incapable of dealing with the large number of different types of execution traces. Accordingly, we propose a combination of trace clustering and text mining to enhance process discovery techniques with the purpose of retrieving more useful insights from process data.
