    Abstract

    Although Business Process Management has emerged as a means to manage and improve business processes, it may require high costs due to the need for software, hardware and technical support. Cloud Computing can help achieve efficient business processes with lower costs, since it provides a fast and cheap way to acquire computing resources in a pay-per- use manner. However, due to safety requirements, certain data or activities of a business process should be kept within the user premises, while others can be allocated to a cloud. This paper presents an approach to decomposition of business processes, which preserves the data constraints, and demonstrates its use through a case study in the healthcare domain.
