Business process networks (BPN), also referred to as business service networks or business process hubs, enable the efficient execution of multi-enterprise operational processes, including supply chain planning and execution. A BPN extends and implements an organization's Service-orientation in Enterprise Applications.
To execute such processes, BPNs combine integration services with application services, often to support a particular industry or process, such as order management, logistics management, automated shipping and receiving, and others.
