MetadataShow full item record
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 show that this community has indeed developed over the years a multi-faceted culture of merging data and processes. 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 management.
