The Internet of Things (IoT) is a buzzword that has emerged in the last decade. The concept indicates that real world objects attached to interconnected technological devices are things with the ability to share data and make decisions. All types of devices that have a connection to the internet are potential collaborators in different areas of the IoT: from industrial domains such as manufacturing or logistics to the life of everyone. These devices provide environment data that has the potential to empower enterprises business processes. Additionally, some devices with processing capabilities have the ability to execute process logic. However, business process modelling standards do not support language constructs to model the features of such devices. In this talk we discuss the challenges of modelling IoT devices gathered data in process modelling languages and the approaches to overcome them.
