Automated Business Process Discovery (alias Process Intelligence, Process Analysis, Workflow Mining or Process Mining) includes methods, standards and tools to support the discovery and analysis of operational business processes. Paper aims to review ongoing standards for storing and managing event log data, which is starting point for process mining, and verify in what range chosen standards meet the needs of event log analysis. We discuss CWAD, BPAF, PROV-DM, PROV-O, MXML, SA-MXML, and XES formats. Findings of the paper are based on the literature review and analysis of selected software.
