A Phased Deployment of a Workflow Infrastructure in the Enterprise Architecture

Many organizations migrate to Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) since it caters for the demanded flexibility and reusability in information systems. Besides delineating appropriate business services, mechanisms for coordinating these services are needed to support business processes.
