Abstract(s)In software development, patterns and standards are two important things that contribute strongly to the success of any system implementation. Characteristics like these ones improve a lot systems communication and data interchange across different computational platforms, integrating processes and data flows in an easy way. In ETL systems, the change of business requirements is a very serious problem leading frequently to reengineer existing populating processes implementations in order to receive new data structures or tasks not defined previously. Every time this happens, existing ETL processes must be changed in order to accommodate new business requirements. Furthermore, ETL modelling and planning suffers from a lack of mature methodology and notation to represent ETL processes in a uniform way across all implementation process, providing means to validate, reduce implementation errors, and improve communication among users with different knowledge in the field. In this paper, we used the BPMN modelling language for ETL conceptual modelling, providing formal specifications for workflow orchestration and data process transformations. We provide a new layer of abstraction that is based on a set of patterns expressed in BPMN for ETL conceptual modelling. These patterns or meta-models represent the most common used tasks in real world ETL systems.
