Abstract / Description of output

The infrastructure of Grid is approaching maturity and can be used to enable the utilisation and sharing of large scale, remote data storages through distributed computational capabilities and support collaborations and co-operations between different organisations. Grid can therefore be suitably used to support the creation and running of a virtual organisation (VO). However, to assist the smooth operation of VOs, robust computational and storage facilities alone are not sufficient. There must also exist appropriate rich business infrastructure. In this chapter, the authors consider business process frameworks that utilise semantics-based business process modelling (BPM) technologies, and they illustrate the multidisciplinary nature of our approach by applying them to three different fields: Supply Chain Management, Business Intelligence and Knowledge Management, and Intelligent Video Analysis. They aim to show that these three application areas that incorporate semantics-based BPM methods could be used to support developing Grid applications, and to subsequently support VOs.
