In this position paper we describe what we believe are fundamental weaknesses of existing commercial workflow products and how database technology can be used to address these issues. By exporting database technology beyond the transactional domain, we expect to be able to design scalable, robust, failure-resilient and flexible workflow systems to be used in application domains ranging from business process to computer integrated manufacturing.
