Business Artifacts: A Data-centric Approach to Modeling Business Operations and Processes

David Cohn, Richard Hull
2009 IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin  
Traditional approaches to business process modeling and workflow are based on activity flows (with data often an afterthought) or documents (with processing often an afterthought).  ...  Artifacts combine both data aspects and process aspects into a holistic unit, and serve as the basic building blocks from which models of business operations and processes are constructed.  ...  Researchers outside of IBM have also contributed directly or indirectly to the larger artifact-centric vision, including Serge Abiteboul, Elio Damaggio, Alin Deutsch, Christian Fritz, Fabio Patrizi, Jianwen  ...

Data-Centricity and Services Interoperation [chapter]

Richard Hull
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Incorporating the data-centric perspective holds the promise of providing formal foundations for service interoperation that address issues such as providing a syntax-independent meta-model and semantics  ...  , and enabling faithful modeling of parallel interactions between multiple parties.  ...  As described in [31] , it is natural to model and implement such processes using the business artifact approach, using an artifact instance for each idea or initiative that is explored.  ...

Foundations of data-aware process analysis

Diego Calvanese, Giuseppe De Giacomo, Marco Montali
2013 Proceedings of the 32nd symposium on Principles of database systems - PODS '13  
In this work we survey the research on foundations of data-aware (business) processes that has been carried out in the database theory community.  ...  We argue that it is this community that should lay the foundations to solve, at least from the point of view of formal analysis, the dichotomy between data and processes still persisting in business process  ...  This research has been partially supported by the EU under the ICT Collaborative Project ACSI (Artifact-Centric Service Interoperation), grant agreement n. FP7-257593.  ...

Detecting Runtime Business Process Compliance with Artifact Lifecycles [chapter]

Qi He
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Detecting business process compliance in runtime is the complementary to static compliance checking in the stage of process design, and allows checking whether an execution of a business process satisfies  ...  Previous methods for runtime compliance checking mainly put focus on activities in business process and lose the attention for data.  ...  In recent years, as a data-centric approach, the artifact-centric methodology [1] has emerged as a new paradigm to support business process management.  ...

4.1.4 Definition of Enterprise Architecture-centric Models for the Systems Engineer

Gundars Osvalds
2001 INCOSE International Symposium  
The bridging process provides a traceable methodology for developing architectural models of the enterprise that are directly traceable to the Zachman Framework primitives, thereby ensuring that the architecture  ...  The Zachman Framework is used as the basis for creating models of the architecture. This paper proposes a bridging concept to define the models for the architectural perspectives.  ...  The architecture-centric approach provides the systems engineer a way to model the enterprise (system-of-systems) in order to formally address enterprise wide concerns.  ...

Supporting Multilevel Incentive Mechanisms in Crowdsourcing Systems: An Artifact-Centric View [chapter]

Ognjen Scekic, Hong-Linh Truong, Schahram Dustdar
2015 Progress in IS  
We then propose an artifact-centric approach for modeling incentives in rich crowdsourcing environments that meets these requirements.  ...  Existing process-centric collaboration modeling approaches (e.g., workflows) are incapable of encoding such incentive mechanisms.  ...  Finally, [10] presents a comprehensive survey of the fundamental research on artifact-centric BPM.  ...

Artifact-Centric Choreographies [chapter]

Niels Lohmann, Karsten Wolf
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper extends existing concepts for artifact-centric business process models with the concepts of agents and locations.  ...  In a setting with more than one agent, however, our approach reaches beyond the single agent setting: We derive not only the actions that need to be performed on the artifacts for reaching a goal but also  ...  Related work There exists a variety of approaches dealing with artifact-centric modeling of business processes.

Modeling and Verifying Active XML Artifacts

Serge Abiteboul, Luc Segoufin, Victor Vianu
2009 IEEE Data Engineering Bulletin  
We follow here a data-centric workflow approach where both data and tasks, but also the "actors" (humans, processes, systems) are captured by AXML artifacts [4] .  ...  In response to the need for computerized support of such activities, the notion of business artifact has been proposed at IBM as a model of such evolving data [1] .  ...  The notion of activity, often arising in functional decompositions of business processes, may be seen as a view over a system of artifacts.  ...

Data-Flow Modeling: A Survey of Issues and Approaches

Cristina-Claudia DOLEAN, Razvan PETRUSEL
2012 Informatică economică  
This paper presents a survey of previous research on modeling the data flow perspective of business processes.  ...  For some time, various researchers tried to investigate the data flow perspective of process models or to combine the control and data flow in one model. This paper surveys those approaches.  ...  [27] proposes a data-centric approach in order to find deadlocks from a business process. They consider the business process being modeled as a Petri Net.  ...

A Survey of B2B Methodologies and Technologies: From Business Models towards Deployment Artifacts

Jurgen Dorn, Christoph Grun, Hannes Werthner, Marco Zapletal
2007 2007 40th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS'07)  
On a business level, a lot of work has been done to capture business models and collaborative business processes of an enterprise.  ...  Furthermore, we discuss how individual specifications on different levels fit together -starting from business models via business processes to artifacts ready for deployment.  ...  Since BPMN is defined from scratch as a business process modeling notation, it has a definite business centric approach.  ...

Synthesizing data-centric models from business process models

Rik Eshuis, Pieter Van Gorp
2015 Computing  
Data-centric business process models couple data and control flow to specify flexible business processes.  ...  To support this vision, we define a semi-automated approach to synthesize an object-centric design from a business process model that specifies the flow of multiple stateful objects between activities.  ...  Data-centric modeling approaches aim to have a more integrated perspective on business processes by treating data elements as first-class citizens next to process elements [22, 29] .  ...
