In this demonstration, we present a framework for enriching business processes with tags specialized into social, resource, location, and temporal. Using the framework, business-process engineers and end-users (i.e., executors) provide the tags with the necessary details which are then automatically propagated from one tag to another, when appropriate. At design time phase of a business process, the propagation of relations between tags reflects unidirectional-transfer-offinal-details, unidirectional-transfer-of-partial-details, and bidirectional transfer- of-partial-details while at run-time the propagation of relations reflects strong-trigger, weak-trigger, and meet-in-the-middle trigger. Our provides an elegant mechanism for monitoring business processes which is more user-driven than traditional approaches which heavily rely on log analysis mechanisms.
