AbstractThe analysis of data produced during collaborative activities allows organizations to improve collaboration management. Since people use several collaboration tools, these kind of data are dif´Čücult to obtain. Furthermore they are heterogeneous and require an important preprocessing step to be useful. In the present work we introduce a methodology aimed at obtaining a single logwith all data related to team activities. To improve process analysis, such data log is semantically enriched by means of a multidimensional taxonomy capable of describing collaboration activities at various abstraction levels. We also introduce a case study to be used throughout the paper as an illustrative example.
