Today, business processes are modeled without taking into deeper consideration the context of the business environment where they will be later executed. As a consequence, initiation, management and delayed adjustments of business processes are demanding, time-consuming and very often impossible tasks. In this paper we summarize crucial advantages and disadvantages of different Context modeling approaches, and we define the Context related to the scope of the business environment particularly. If we could assign a Business Context to a business process, we could undermine negative trends in today's business, such as interoperability issues, inconsistencies and heterogeneous interpretations of different business processes.
