The SOA-based BPM platforms provide capabilities for business process modeling, execution, monitoring and optimization through the support of the Web services standards. Features of the platforms are process flexibility, easy integration and reuse of the assets from the platform. The European Grid Infrastructure (EGI) uses partially service-oriented grid middleware for grid computing (g-Lite). In this context applying the SOA-based model of the BPM platforms for the EGI will improve the development of flexible service-oriented solutions and will provide a framework for business process management in the grid infrastructure. In this paper, the authors propose architecture of platform that supports the management of business processes in the EGI. The main modules and components of the platform are presented.
