Scalability of software systems has been a research topic for many years and is as relevant as ever with the dramatic increases in digitization of business operations and data. This relevance also applies to process management systems, most of which are currently incapable of scaling horizontally, i.e., over multiple servers. This paper discusses an approach towards hyperscale workflows, using a data-centric process engine to encapsulate data and process logic into objects, which can then be
