Abstract / Description of output

Workflow technologies are emerging as the dominant approach to coordinate groups of distributed services. However with a space filled with competing specifications, standards and frameworks from multiple domains, choosing the right tool for the job is not always a straightforward task. Researchers are often unaware of the range of technology that already exists and focus on implementing yet another proprietary workflow system. As an antidote to this common problem, this paper presents a concise survey of existing workflow technology from the business and scientific domain and makes a number of key suggestions towards the future development of scientific workflow systems.
