Fan, Shaokun; Hu, Daning; Zhao, Leon (2008). Integrating workflow and forum via event management. In: IEEE Symposium on Advanced Management of Information for Globalized Enterprises, Tianjin, China, 28 September 2008 - 29 September 2008, 1-5.

Abstract

Workflows have been widely used for coordinating structured processes, whereas group support systems are used to facilitate ad hoc and unstructured collaboration activities. In many business settings, it is beneficial to use both workflows and group support systems. However, how to integrate workflow systems and group support systems have not been well studied in the literature. In this paper, we propose a scalable middleware framework, namely event management system, which can support high-degree decoupling between workflow and groupware. The event management architecture and its main functionalities as well as the implementation techniques are presented. We delineate the applicability of event-based integration by comparing with other integration paradigms.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
