Described herein are systems, methods, and computer programs for extracting a seed comprising steps common in executions of a Business Process (BP) and utilizing the seed to identify other executions of the BP. In one embodiment, the seed is extracted from sequences of steps from streams of steps performed during interactions with instances of a software system. The sequences comprise first and second sequences corresponding to executions of the BP, which are associated with first and second organizations, respectively. The seed comprises two or more consecutively performed steps that appear in each of the sequences. Occurrences of the seed are identified in one or more streams of steps performed during interactions with an instance of the software system belonging to a third organization. The occurrences are extended in order to generate candidate sequences that are evaluated to determine whether they correspond to executions of the BP.
