Towards Webscale Business Processes

82

Published on

Networks are replacing hierarchical models in many aspects of our society, and the world of business processes has to adapt to this. Instead of designing consolidated flows that are believed to address the constraints of all parties involved, organizations will capture the individual constraints of all stakeholders, and business processes meeting these constraints are automatically inferred.

Presented by Jeroen van Grondelle at Xperience 2013.

  1. 1. Towards Webscale Business ProcessesJeroen van Grondelle
  2. 2. From  Hierarchies  to  Networks  
  3. 3. Flow  doesn’t  Scale!  Contextuality and up front consolidationlead to combinatoric explosion
  4. 4. Flow  requires  Up  Front  Consolida<on  0  1000  2000  5   10   15  Number of Potential Coalitionsat Execution Time
  5. 5. Flow  encodes  Contextuality  0  500  1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10  Number of Process Configurationsat Execution TimeContextuality follows from multiple target groups, actors,products or product variants, change over time, etc.
  6. 6. When  does  it  break?  Or  did  it  already?  High  Numbers  of  Process  variants?  BIG  spreadsheets?  Consistency?  Maintenance  cost?
