Model-Aware Monitoring of SOAs for Compliance
Business processes today are supported by process-driven service oriented architectures. Due to the increasing importance of compliance of an organization with regulatory requirements and internal policies, there is a need for appropriate techniques to monitor organizational information systems as they execute business processes. Event-based monitoring of processes is one of the ways to provide runtime process-state information. This type of monitoring, however, has limitations mostly related to the type and amount of information available in events and process engines. The authors propose a novel approach - model-aware monitoring of business processes - to address these limitations.
