A promising approach to managing business operations is based on <i>business artifacts</i>, a.k.a. <i>business entities</i> (<i>with lifecycles</i>). These are key conceptual entities that are central to guiding the operations of a business, and whose content changes as they move through those operations. An artifact type includes both an <i>information(More)
Business process management, workflow, and case management are critical technologies for managing collections of services, including human activities , to support business operations. One way to manage business operations is based on business entities with lifecycles (BEL's) (a.k.a. business artifacts), i.e., key conceptual entities that are central to(More)
Business artifacts (or simply, artifacts) are used to model conceptual entities that are central to guiding the operations of a business, and whose content changes as they move through those operations. The recently introduced Guard-Stage-Milestone (GSM) meta-model for artifact lifecycles is declarative in nature, and allows concurrent execution of(More)
Web Services providing access to datasources with structured data have an important place in the SOA. In this paper we focus on modeling and discovery of generic data providing services (DPS), with the goal of making data providing services available for interactions with service requesters in contexts such as service composition and mediation. In our model(More)
A promising approach to managing business operations is based on business arti-facts, a.k.a. business entities (with lifecycles) [8, 6]. These are key conceptual entities that are central to guiding the operations of a business, and whose content changes as they move through those operations. A business artifact type is modeled using (a) an information(More)
Execution monitoring of complex web service process models is critical for effective management and control of web services based systems. During the composite process model execution or as part of the after-execution analysis complex event patterns (called composite events) consisting of various primitive events need to be detected. In this paper we(More)
The business artifact (a.k.a. business entity) approach to modeling and implementing business operations and processes is based on a holistic marriage of data and process and enables a factoring of business operations based on key business-relevant conceptual entities. The recently introduced Guard-Stage-Milestone (GSM) artifact meta-model provides a(More)
The framework for automatic mediation of two process models composed of semantically annotated Web services is presented. Process mediation is hard because of many possible mismatches between process models. We introduce algorithms for the process models analysis to find possible mappings between provider's and requester's process models, or to identify(More)
