Semantic Business Process Management (SBPM) utilizes semantic technologies to achieve more automation throughout the BPM lifecycle. An integral part of the SBPM infrastructure is a Semantic Business Process Repository (SBPR), which is used for storage and management of business process modeling artifacts. As in SBPM business process models are based on process ontologies, the SBPR has additional requirements towards support of reasoning and querying capabilities. In this paper, the authors first identify the functionalities the SBPR has to provide.
