Application Process : ArchiMate

An application process represents a sequence of application behaviors that achieves a specific outcome.

An application process describes the internal behavior performed by an application component that is required to realize a set of services. For a (human or automated) consumer the services are relevant and the required behavior is merely a black box, hence the designation “internal”.

An application process may realize application services. Other application services may serve (be used by) an application process. An application process may access data objects. An application component may be assigned to an application process (which means that this component performs the process). The name of an application process should clearly identify a series of application behaviors; e.g., “Claims adjudication process”, or “General ledger update job”.
