Object-Centered Process Modeling: Principles to Model Data-Intensive Systems

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing book series (LNBIP,volume 66)

Abstract

New modeling approaches appeared in the last decade based on the premise that process structures in data-intensive landscapes are pushed by data-driven events. However, since emergent approaches as artifact-centered, data-driven, product-based and document-based modeling cover reduced subsets of all data-related needs, they have a limited practical impact [13]. This work structures the set of requirements to model responsive data-intensive systems, studies the emergent object-centered approaches to retrieve a set of principles and, finally, defines a solution direction, centered in expressive object models and in model transformations, for the support of the introduced principles.
