The Role of Database Technology in Workflow Management
||The Role of Database Technology in Workflow Management
||Proceedings of the First International Conference on Interoperable and Cooperative SystemsBrussels, Belgium
||Institute for Information Systems, ETH Zürich
The main goal of this panel is to discuss the role of database technology and
research in the new area of workflow management systems. There are
several hundred workflow products in the market nowadays and the
database community has had so far very little impact in this area. Yet,
the problems faced by workflow systems have a lot in common with problems
already solved for databases. The panel will aim to identify which
database technology is relevant in the workflow area and research
directions that are most likely to have a significant impact on the evolution of
workflow systems. As the basis for discussion, this proposal outlines the
current state of the art and points out possible areas in which database
technology could be applied in workflow contexts.
