This paper describes two approaches for semantically-assisted design of collaborative business processes in intra-and inter-enterprise application integration scenarios. Both approaches rely on the ENterprise Integration Ontology (ENIO) that resolves structural heterogeneities of different business applications on the data and functional level. Additionally, the ENIO ontology provides a process facet that supports semantically-assisted creation and adaptation of process templates within a hierarchy of business process categories. The proposed solution should provide additional value, in particular for SMEs since the achieved degree of automation is expected to reduce the integration costs significantly.
