Abstract

It has been over ten years since the first workflow product was introduced. Despite the large number of workflow vendors and research efforts all over the world, despite all the rosy predictions about the workflow market, and despite all the hype about the workflow technology, workflow is still far from pervasive. This paper tries to understand the situation from a technical point of view, focusing on the development and enactment aspects of work-flow processes. We discuss the current capabilities of workflow products, major issues that need to be addressed before workflow can be pervasive, as well as possible future trends and research that will help work flow succeed.
