Reflections on a Decade of Interorganizational Workflow Research
The Public-To-Private (P2P) approach presented at CAiSE in 2001 provides a correctness-by-construction approach to realize interorganizational workflows. A behavioral inheritance notion is used to ensure correctness: organizations can alter their private workflows as long as these remain subclasses of the agreed upon public workflow. The CAiSE'01 paper illustrates the strong relationship between business process management and service-orientation. Since 2001, there is a trend from the investigation of individual process orchestrations to interacting processes, i.e., process choreographies. In this paper, the authors reflect on the original problem statement and discuss related work.
