Semantics is applied into Business Process Management (BPM) to bridge the gap between the business world and information systems, especially in the context of B2B integration. Current standards such as BPMN, XPDL, BPEL and their combination have not fulfilled the expectation of two communities. The gap is still there: how enterprises can make the cross collaboration each other without ‘knowing’ their partners; and how a process based on the graphical notation can be fully mapped into the executable process without its semantics. In this paper, we propose a new approach, namely BizKB framework, for the cross-enterprise integration using ontologies and Semantic Web Services technologies in order to realizing business concepts into the executable level using web services.
