Workflows in Dynamic Software Systems
Keywords:Workflows, Management, BMM, FDBA
Business software systems and applications use business
process management concepts to organize and automate processes.
Incorporating a business process management system in existing business
applications is a pretty complex task and, as well, is very expensive in
terms of time and human resources. The article presents a newly
conceived Framework for Dynamic Business Applications - a software
platform that allows business users (domain experts) to defne at run
time all business objects that they will work with, their properties,
relationships, and restrictions of their business/domain model. This is
very similar to what can be done with business ontologies regarding
representation of entities, ideas, and events, along with their properties
and relations. After defning them, business users can use them to
populate data in the application and later apply this data for data
extraction, analysis, visualization, and reporting.
