Business processes have played an important role in enabling business application integration and collaboration across multiple organisations. The integration can be categorised into two types: internal integration and external integration. Internal integration includes all the integration aspects within one enterprise. Enterprise application integration (EAI) is a typical example of internal integration. External integration covers all the possible integration patterns across multiple enterprises. The typical business process based external application integration includes business process to application integration (BP2Ai) and business process to business process integration (BP2BPi). To stay competitive, companies must be agile in adapting their business processes to the ever-changing market dynamics. The adaptive business process based enterprises should look beyond the traditional enterprises and marketplaces through collaborative interactions and dynamic e-business solution bindings. The enterprise infrastructure has to provide the capability for dynamic discovery of trading partners and service providers as well as enabling federated security mechanisms, solution monitoring and management. The IJBPIM focuses on the emerging business process modelling, simulation, integration and management using emerging technologies. IJBPIM is the first academic journal that concentrates on the information technology (IT) level as well as the relationship between the business level and IT implementation level.
