Abstract

Business Process Management Systems (BMPSs) are often used to track activities, identify inefficiencies, and streamline the workflow. Typically, BPMSs are used by a single organization for internal users and processes through a trusted central system. However, scenarios involving multiple parties present a new challenge: to ensure the reliability of registered information and strict adherence to business rules for all participants without a central authority. Therefore, we explored the use of blockchain technology in association with a BPMS to create a Distributed Business Process System (dBPMS). This integration can fulfill the requirements above mentioned, creating tamper-proof registries, allowing reliable self-execution through smart contracts, within a trusted environment for all parties, without the need for inter-party trust. The proposed solution provides a workflow encompassing all activities and parties in an efficient ecosystem.
