A Review of Event Formats as Enablers of event-driven BPM

Becker Jörg, Matzner Martin, Müller Oliver, Walter Marcel


Abstract
Event-driven Business Process Management (edBPM) is based upon exchanging and processing business events. As yet, no commonly adopted event format for communicating business events between distributed event producers and consumers has emerged. This paper is an effort to review the status quo of event formats against the requirements of edBPM. We particularly discuss BPAF, CBE, and XES as promising candidates and identify prospects for development.
