Business process modeling and management approaches are increasingly used and disclosed between organizations as a means of optimizing and streamlining the business activities. Among the various existing modeling languages, the authors stress the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN), currently in version 2.0.

BPMN enables business process modeling, but does not facilitate the modeling of the information infrastructure involved in the process.
