BPM Architecture Design Based on Cloud Computing
Abstract: Cloud Computing has become one of the popular buzzwords in the IT area after Web2.0. This is not a new technology, but the concept that binds different existed technologies altogether including Grid Computing, Utility Computing, distributed system, virtualization and other mature technique. Business Process Management (BPM) is designed for business management using IT infrastructure to focus on process modeling, monitor and management. BPM is composed of business process, business information and IT resources, which help to build a real-time intelligent system, based on business management and IT technologies. This paper describes theory on Cloud Computing and proposes a BPM implement on Cloud environments.
