Process mining allows for the automated discovery of process models from event logs. These models provide insights and enable various types of model-based analysis. However, in many situations already some normative process model is given, and the goal is not to discover a model, but to check its conformance. The Process Mining framework ProM provides a conformance checker able to investigate and quantify deviations between the real process (as recorded in the event log) and the modeled process. The conformance checker is one of the few tools available today that is able support regulatory compliance, i.e., ensuring that organizations and people take steps to comply with relevant laws, regulations, and procedures.
