IoT’s presence is increasingly felt. There are already more connected devices to the internet than total human population and sales are starting to rise. As there is extensive research ongoing in order to propose a global architecture to build IoT applications, the domain will rise as soon as a common solution will be widespread. Further, we would need to integrate IoT applications into the legacy data processing solutions. Business Process Model, for example, is a common concept used to build and compose software. Could the Internet of Things become an active shareholder in this approach? The Internet of Things, unlike BPM (which is more static), has specific constraints and peculiar organisations based on its dynamicity and heterogeneity. We propose, in this paper, a gateway to adapt our own IoT platform to the needs of the BPM approach and we also try to analyse the difficulties that may arise therein.
