Summary/Abstract: The current paper is aimed at bridging the gap between the contribution of academia and practice in respect of data specifications in regard to the implementation of analytical models in business process engines in the subsequent stages of increasing process maturity of business organization. The issues of identifying structural relationships between documents, building structural data- and documents model within the organization as well as managing complexity of such a model remain intentionally outside the scope of Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). Thus, the effectiveness of achieving the level of executable business processes is largely dependent on the proper selection and introduction of notations that are complementary to the process dynamics modeling standard. Within the paper a set of potential complementary techniques, including proprietary UML profile for BPMN data modeling (BPMNDoc), is proposed. Authors conduct a comparative analysis of the techniques as well as provide an exemplification and data specifications based on a case study of site acceptance process in a telecommunications company.
