The purpose of our approach is to enable Business Process development to benefit from economies of scale, faster provisioning times, decreased runtime costs, and reduced energy consumption. To do so, we aim at enriching Business Process Models with a semantic knowledge base about the consumed cloud resources that can be used to optimize resource management...
