Collection and Elicitation of Business Process Compliance Patterns with Focus on Data Aspects

Abstract

Business process compliance is one of the prevalent challenges for com-panies. Despite an abundance of research proposals, companies still struggle with manual compliance checks and the understanding of compliance violations in the light of missing root-cause explanations. Moreover, approaches have merely fo-cused on the control flow perspective in compliance checking, neglecting other aspects such as the data perspective. This work aims at analyzing the gap be-tween existing academic work and compliance demands from practice with a focus on the data aspects. The latter emerges from a small set of regulatory documents from different domains. Patterns are assumed as the right level of abstraction for compliance specification due to their independence of (technical) implementation in (process-aware) information systems, potential for reuse, and understandability. A systematic literature review collects and assesses existing compliance patterns. A first analysis of ten regulatory documents from different domains specifically reveals data-oriented compliance constraints that are not yet reflected by existing compliance patterns. Accordingly data-related compliance patterns are specified.
