Joos Buijs, PhD Information Systems

'After completing my higher vocational education degree in Computer Science in Breda, I still wanted to do a Master's degree at university. I chose Business Information Systems. The combination of business administration and computer science was what I found most appealing.

I specialize in process mining. What is that? I hear you ask. We try to analyze a system in order to find out how processes run in an organization. Where are the bottlenecks? What could be improved, what could be faster or more effective? Consider a hospital, for example: a system may show that a certain combination of treatments occurs frequently. By positioning those treatment rooms close to one another, you optimize the process. All of that information can be obtained from your systems. It is actually a bit like digging for treasure.'
