Since as early as the 90's, business process re-engineering has been the top priority of businesses all over the globe. Seamlessly adapting the business processes of an enterprise to evolving markets, business strategies and unforeseen happenstances is regarded as a vital capability by the business community at large.

Workflows are the leading approach for specifying and automating business processes in enterprises. The course will provide an extensive insight on the relationship entwining business processes and workflows in the current practice of Business Process Management (BPM). The concepts surrounding workflows will be dissected, including workflow management systems, their mathematical foundations, transactional workflows and fault handling. The technological embodiment of workflows will be treated in the scope of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), a mainstay of BPM in the current practice of enterprises. In particular, the course will cover in detail the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), the de-facto, industry-wide standard for automating business processes specified as executable workflows that leverage the technologies offered in the scope of SOA.
