Logically related tasks that are performed to achieve a certain outcome for an organisation are grouped within business processes. Traditionally, business processes are carried out manually based on the knowlegde of the employees and supported by the institutions regulations and procedures. Modern information technology can support and coordinate these business processes and thus provide additional benefit for the organization.
