SUPER – Semantics Utilized for Process management within and between EnteRprises.
The major objective of SUPER is to raise Business Process Management (BPM) to the business level, where it belongs, from the IT level where it mostly resides now. This objective requires that BPM is accessible at the level of semantics of business experts.
SUPER is funded as a Integrated Project under European Commission 6th FP with a budget around 11M euros. It started April 2006 and runs for 3 years. SUPER is coordinated by SAP, Germany.

The major objective of Semantics Used for Process management within and between EnteRprises (SUPER) is to raise Business Process Management to the business level, where it belongs, from the IT level where it mostly resides now. There are two main reasons for doing this:
1. It will put Business Process Management back into the hands of business people
2. It will enable Business Process Management to scale up to a new level of complexity
This objective requires that BPM is accessible at the level of semantics of business experts. Semantic Web and, in particular, Semantic Web Services technology offer the promise of integrating applications at the semantic level. Therefore, we aim at providing a semantic-based and context-aware framework, based on Semantic Web Services technology that acquires, organizes, shares and uses the knowledge embedded in business processes within existing IT systems and software, and within employees’ heads, in order to make companies more adaptive.
