  • Shows how currently emerging integrated platforms for specifying and controlling processes are the enabling technology of the future Provides results from established theories and standards in computer science, software engineering and business economics Contributes to the current vision of next-generation business-process platforms

Currently, we see a lot of tools and techniques for specifying and implementing business processes. The problem is that there are still gaps and tensions between the different disciplines needed to improve business process execution and improvement in enterprises. Business process modeling, workflow execution and application programming are examples of disciplines that are hosted by different communities and emerged separately from each other. In particular, at the system analysis level concepts are not yet fully elaborated.

Therefore, practitioners are faced again and again with similar questions in concrete business process projects: which decomposition mechanism to use? Who to find the correct granularity for business process activities? Which implementing technology is the optimal one in a given situation?

This book approaches a systematization of the field. The method of the book is explicitly not a comparative analysis of existing tools and techniques – albeit the review of existing tools is a most important source for the considerations in the book. Rather, the book tries to provide a landscape of rationales and concepts in business processes with a discussion of alternatives.
