On the Convergence of Data and Process Engineering
It is common practice in contemporary information systems engineering to combine data engineering methods with process engineering methods. However, these methods are applied rather independently and at different layers of an information system. This situation engenders an impedance mismatch between the process layer and the business logic and data layers in contemporary information systems. We expose some of the issues that this impedance mismatch raises by means of a concrete example. We then discuss emerging paradigms for seamlessly integrating data and process engineering.
