Speaker Series Prof. Dr. Mathias Weske

From Process Orchestrations to Process Choreographies


Traditionally, process orchestrations are in the center of attention, both in business process management research and industry uptake. In recent years, however, the view broadens: Not only local process orchestrations are investigated, but also interactions of processes, i.e., process choreographies. In this talk, the evolution of the Business Process Modeling Notation regarding process choreographies will be discussed. In particular, we show how recent research results have helped shaping the BPMN, and we point out research questions in choreography design and analysis. The talk concludes with a presentation of the Signavio Oryx Academic Initiative, which provides free access to business process modeling software and exercises for academic use.
