Reflections on a Decade of Interorganizational Workflow Research
The Public-To-Private (P2P) approach presented at CAiSE in 2001 provides a correctness-by-construction approach to realize interorganizational workflows. A behavioral inheritance notion is used to ensure correctness: organizations can alter their private workflows as long as these remain subclasses of the agreed-upon public workflow. The CAiSE‘01 paper illustrates the strong relationship between business process management and service-orientation. Since 2001, there is a trend from the investigation of individual process orchestrations to interacting processes, i.e., process choreographies. In this paper, we reflect on the original problem statement and discuss related work.
