Abstract:    (CNC)

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).    (CND)

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

o Through computable languages    (CNF)

o Through messaging    (CNG)

o Through logical entities and abstractions    (CNH)

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.    (CNI)
