A data-intensive workflow is a process that is faced with a large volume or highly variable forms of information. The increasing digitization of office processes, the use of workflows to integrate publicly available data sources, and the application of workflow technology to scientific problem solving have led to an increased interest in the design and deployment of data-intensive workflows. This paper discusses the notion of data-intensive workflows and outlines the implications of increasing data volumes and variances for the design of process-aware applications.
