Abstract: Businesses and software development processes alike are being challenged by the digital transformation trend. Business processes are increasingly being automated yet are expected to be agile. Current business process modeling is typically labor-intensive and results in rigid process models, with larger process models unable to cope with all possible process variations and enactment circumstances. In software development, microservices have become a popular software architectural style for partitioning business logic into finegrained services that can be rapidly and individually developed and (re)deployed while accessed via lightweight protocols, resulting in many more services and a much more dynamic service landscape. Thus, a more dynamic form of modeling, integration, and orchestration of microservices with business processes is needed. This paper describes agile business process modeling with Microflows, an automatic lightweight declarative approach for the workflow-centric orchest ration of semantically-annotated microservices using agent-based clients, graph-based methods, and the lightweight semantic vocabularies JSON-LD and Hydra. A case study shows how Microflow constraints can be automatically extracted from existing Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) files, how Microflow execution log file process mining can be used to extract BPMN models, and demonstrates an automated error recovery capability during enactment.
