I've been trying to play around PPM and discover it's capabilities. One of the capabilities that PPM boosts about is 'Automatic Process Discovery'. I've created few process tables in SQL server, and extracted the data from these tables in the form of event file using PPM's extract data program.
However, while importing the data into PPM's database, I had to model the process fragments using ARIS 9.6 and extract those fragments in a fragment file using PPM special report script.
My query here is.... is it necessary to model fragments and input the fragment file to PPM? Isn't there any other way where PPM can automatically generate fragments using event XML file? If no, then how is it automatic process discovery if one has to model the process fragments manually?
Please help me out understand the functioning of PPM as I'm new to this.
