Model-driven software techniques make it easier and faster to develop business process-oriented applications. Business object modeling, business process component modeling, and business process modeling represent real, process-relevant entities in an implementation, make the entities more transparent, and allow you to close the gap between documentation and development.

This article provides an overview of how to develop process-oriented applications using modeling.
