Business processes define workflow dependencies inside an industry and/or organization. Business processes drive machines and people, and use business data to function properly.

By systematically integrating data and processes, we can understand and assess complete business processes from beginning to end.
Practice, however, often reveals that there is no systematic link between a business process and associated business data.

The aim of this paper to tackle some of the problems encountered in deriving business data from process models. We will show how to systematically map basic business process models using Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) to data models specified in ORM. From the resulting ORM model, we can generate a complete (corporate) relational database, containing the business data that is tailor-made to support the business process.
