Business process models show how business functions relate to each other in a concrete scenario. Today, architecture and business processes are modeled separately. The only integration in architectural diagrams is done with Petri nets in the Fundamental Modeling Concept. Since business users prefer EPCs over Petri nets, the authors show how information of extended EPCs can be transformed into business landscapes. This facilitates development of IT landscapes satisfying the requirements of the business process and adoption of existing IT infrastructures to new requirements.
