Related Work - Zur Muehlen

Similarly, Zur Muehlen et al. provide a general overview of audit trail data as DWH input and the resulting evaluation opportunities [20]. Furthermore, the authors emphasize again the variety of audit trail formats and end up in a design of a data warehouse. In contrast, they neglect facing the BAM and real-time related issues in his architecture.

Related Work - Dahanayake et al.

A more general view to warehousing of BAM data is given by Dahanayake et al. [7]. They provide an overall model of a BAM architecture. Thereby, the authors describe in detail the requirements as a decision support system and introduce variants for di fferent purposes. Consequently, the process data warehouse, introduced in this paper, focuses on the smallest denominator of diff erent variants to ensure a versatile data basis.

Related Work - Schiefer et al.

Schiefer et al. show a data source focused view on audit trails data and its context [14]. Although they stress the need for a process information factory and describe real-time and context requirements of BAM, they do not go deeper into the storage or propagation mechanism. Instead they dive as deep into data extraction as source code examples.

Related Work - Zur Mühlen et al.

In contrast, Zur Mühlen et al. present an evaluation of several WFMS and their conformance to the WfMC standard [21]. They underline the common base of audit trail data as well as the differences among the vendor specific data. Different to the following work they do not introduce any transforming or
propagation of this data.

Related Work - McGregor et al.

McGregor et al. introduce in their paper the WfMC standard for audit logs and motivate for the same an extension to support additional dimension to get more context [12]. Thereby, they see the WFMS as central unit of BAM. Consequently, their approach assume standard conform WFMS and enterprise applications. The authors seem to infer that the WFMS itself should provide sufficient interfaces for decision support.

Related Work - An et al.

A more detailed view on a data warehouse schema for process data is given by An et al. [2]. The authors introduce an architecture for a BPI system. Thereby, a linkage between a DWH and a ODS is planned to provide real-time facilities. Nevertheless their schema is based on the HP Process Manager WFMS. Therefore, it lacks universal view on audit trails logs and does not consider the need for a business context.
