Generalizability and Applicability of Modelbased Business Process Compliance-Checking Approaches – A State-of-the-Art Analysis and Research Roadmap
Becker Jörg, Delfmann Patrick, Eggert Mathias, Schwittay Sebastian
With a steady increase of regulatory requirements for business processes, automation support ofcompliance management is a field garnering increasing attention in Information Systems research.Several approaches have been developed to support compliance checking of process models. One majorchallenge for such approaches is their ability to handle different modeling techniques and compliancerules in order to enable widespread adoption and application. Applying a structured literaturesearch strategy, we reflect and discuss compliance-checking approaches in order to provide an insightinto their generalizability and evaluation. The results imply that current approaches mainlyfocus on special modeling techniques and/or a restricted set of types of compliance rules. Most approachesabstain from real-world evaluation which raises the question of their practical applicability.Referring to the search results, we propose a roadmap for further research in model-based businessprocess compliance checking.
