Abstract
Companies that are in a constantly changing context need enterprise agility to create new ways of doing business. For this reason, companies are changing their organization to one based on business processes. That is, companies expect to achieve business agility through the agility of their business processes. However, process automation is focused on technology and not on business process strategy. Therefore, the agility of the business process is achieved in part of the business process cycle. Companies can improve enterprise agility if they achieve agility throughout the business process cycle. This paper proposes a framework for automating business processes - FABP, to respond to business requirements with agility. The FABP uses the enterprise integration approach, where the activities of business process automation processes exchange models and reconfigure models through development driven by models from start to finish. The FABP focuses on agility for the definition of the business process strategy. That is, in the ability to reconfigure the enterprise model to obtain the business process strategy model. In this way, improve agility throughout the business process cycle. The result of the reconfiguration of the enterprise model to obtain the business process strategy model is partial. Therefore, it is concluded that the FABP allows to improve the agility of the business process and therefore the business agility. The paper presents a FABP that allows to respond with agility to the enterprise requirements.
