Business processes are very important for nowadays enterprises. The centralization of business processes requires a supporting IT infrastructure often arranged as Service Oriented Architecture. Business analysts are modelling processes on a very high functional level. These functional process models have to be transferred onto the underlying IT infrastructure, which is arousing problems caused by very time consuming implementation work accomplished by IT experts and inconsistencies between model and implementation. The initial cause for the mentioned problem can be broken down to a communication problem between business analysts and IT experts which is often referred to as the Business-IT Divide.
Semantic technologies aim at eliminating this gap by providing a common communication basis through ontologies. The present work examines the applicability of semantics in context of Business Process Management by developing a new method for business process modelling. It further focuses on the automatic transformation of business process models into the implementation with help of semantic descriptions. The method is validated concerning its usability by an empirical study.
