The focus of classical WFMSs was on process automation, and the workflow patterns focused on the control-flow perspective. Over time, WFM technology was embedded in a variety of larger systems. NET framework. The term Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS) was introduced to signify that process support is not limited to pure-play WFMSs. Moreover, over time, vendors and analysts started to refer to WFMSs as Business Process Management Systems (BPMS). The term BPMS illustrates that the scope of most systems has broadened from process automation to process management, support, and analysis.

In each of these situations, there is the need to determine which resources are suitable and available to undertake the work item and then to rank them and select the most appropriate one. An alternative to this course of action is indicated by the state offered to multiple resources, where the system informs multiple resources of the existence of a work item. Again the notion of resource selection applies; however, in this case, the system informs all suitable resources of the work item. It does not attempt to identify which of them should undertake it.

2), a leading example of a case management system, and Oracle BPEL, part of Oracle SOA Suite (version 11g release 1), one of the foremost toolsets for service-oriented process enablement. The workflow patterns are part of a continually expanding field that seeks to provide a comprehensive foundation for process-aware information systems. There are a number of other patterns initiatives — some of which are ongoing — that produced complementary sets of patterns. In part IV, we survey some of the more important efforts in this area and the opportunities that they offer, before concluding the book.
