*Enhancing Business Processes Using Semantic Reasoning*
 by Monica Martin    (06)

*Abstract*:    (07)

Business is looking for ways to squeeze dollars and increase operational 
efficiency through business process automation and integration. Business 
integration and business process management are gaining momentum, with 
evolving standards in tow. Foundational and composed services are being 
developed and advanced capabilities in the Business Process Management 
(BPM) space are gaining momentum, following on the tails of large 
corporate technology investment (and marketing dollars).    (08)

Process automation and integration are being approached in many ways:    (09)

   *  Through computable languages
   *  Through messaging
   *  Through logical entities and abstractions    (010)

With new and advanced capabilities, abstractions and constraints 
(context, policy, quality of service, etc), the complexity brings many 
challenges. Emerging technologies are embracing mathematical and 
semantic building blocks to enable future BPM solutions (such as 
semantic variables, conformance typing systems, process matching, etc). 
Taking a pragmatic iterative approach, new conceptual building blocks 
are being developed to lay the groundwork for use of semantic reasoning 
as part of the ongoing progress and success of BPM. This brief will 
harvest a few examples evident in emerging technologies.     (011)
