On Capturing Process Requirements of Workflow Based Business Information Systems [chapter]

Wasim Sadiq, Maria E. Orlowska
1999 BIS '99  
It is essential to correctly and effectively capture the workflow specific requirements of business information systems before their deployment through workflow management systems.  ...  The workflow technology manages the execution of business activities and coordinates the flow of information throughout the enterprise.  ...  Data requirements are modelled through conceptual data modeling methodologies like entity-relationship, and process modeling methodologies like data flow diagrams, are used to identify business processes  ...

SeGA: A Mediator for Artifact-Centric Business Processes [chapter]

Yutian Sun, Wei Xu, Jianwen Su, Jian Yang
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Business processes (BPs) can be designed using a variety of modeling languages and executed in different systems.  ...  We demonstrate that SeGA provides a simple yet general framework for runtime querying and monitoring BP executions cross different BP management systems.  ...  A standard BP management system (BPMS) is typically used in internal BP management in a business unit.  ...

Toward a Time-centric modeling of Business Processes in BPMN 2.0

Saoussen Cheikhrouhou, Slim Kallel, Nawal Guermouche, Mohamed Jmaiel
2013 Proceedings of International Conference on Information Integration and Web-based Applications & Services - IIWAS '13  
The work presented in this paper sets foundation for later automation of these constraints through process execution engines.  ...  In this context, organizations tend to rely more on business process management (BPM ) to streamline their operations.  ...  Actually, business managers strive to have full support of temporal aspects in their business process management suites.  ...

Process Variability through Automated Late Selection of Fragments [chapter]

Aitor Murguzur, Goiuria Sagardui, Karmele Intxausti, Salvador Trujillo
2013 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
This paper presents the foundations of a novel approach for an end-to-end variability management of process models through late selection of fragments by means of: (i) managing process fragments separately  ...  from the base model, (ii) resolving variation points automatically considering constraints and context data at runtime, and (iii) enabling process fragment recommendations based on experience logs.  ...  mining mechanism depending on the received context data.  ...

Decoupling Constraint Validation from Business Activities to Improve Dependability in Distributed Object Systems

Lorenz Froihofer, Johannes Osrael, Karl M. Goeschka
2007 The Second International Conference on Availability, Reliability and Security (ARES'07)  
We contribute with an approach to decouple the integrity constraints from the business logic as well as the setpoints of constraint validation from the business activities.  ...  This allows us to balance dependability with respect to node and link failures by temporarily relaxing constraint consistency.  ...  Acknowledgments This work has been partially funded by the European Community under the FP6 IST project DeDiSys (Dependable Distributed Systems, contract 004152,  ...

Towards Semantic Integrity in Relational Databases [chapter]

Reinhardt A. Botha
2002 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
The usefulness of data largely depends on its correctness, which is determined by the extent to which the data reflects the real-world and universe of discourse.  ...  The changes must, furthermore, occur according to business rules. This type of control falls within the domain of an access control service.  ...  Procedural Definition: Creating Triggers Integrity constraints that depend on application semantics are prime candidates for being implemented through a procedural definition.  ...

Towards Resource-aware Business Process development in the Cloud

Emna Hachicha, Walid Gaaloul
2015 2015 IEEE 29th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications  
This paper fills this gap by proposing an extension to the BPMN metamodel in order to optimally manage resources deployed in the cloud through resource constraints verification.  ...  To do so, we aim at enriching Business Process Models with a semantic knowledge base about the consumed cloud resources that can be used to optimize resource management.  ...  We argue that business processes owners could make use of cloud resources and thereby improve their management by incorporating the semantic notion through a resource management knowledge.  ...
