    Abstract:

    E-Business Process Management and Intelligence E-business is becoming
    the trademark of the 2000s. Today, companies are using the Web to
    communicate with
    their partners, connect with their back-end systems, and perform
    e-commerce transactions. To compete successfully, enterprises are
    demanding effective ways to
    implement and deliver e-service over the Internet.

    Many companies have focused their development on the front-end
    supporting personalized web-based interfaces. However, the backend
    operations are often not
    adequate to support the offering, especially causing many dotcoms failed
    in fulfillment of their orders. Indeed, according to several technology
    marketing research
    groups, the main reason for the April 2000 crash in the Internet stock
    market is due to the lack of a suitable e-business backbone that
    efficiently connects the
    back-end enterprise applications and streamline e-commerce processes.

    On the other hand, successful e-business companies, have identified
    workflow as the key technology for connecting back-end applications, for
    automating,
    monitoring, and controlling e-business processes. In addition, modern
    workflow systems enable rapid design, development, and maintenance of
    e-business
    operations, and can reduce time to market for deploying new e-services
    as well as for modifying and improving existing ones. According to
    Gartner Group's report,
    by 2004 over 90% of the companies will be exploiting process automation
    technology for supporting their e-business operations.

    In this talk, we will discuss the workflow automation and a new research
    challenge of business process intelligence regarding the knowledge
    discovery, flow
    optimization and efficient resource allocation for business operation
    improvements.
