    Event-Driven Architectures are a critical instrument for tomorrow's fast-acting and agile enterprises. To benefit maximally from the technological innovations in service-oriented computing, businesses need to link an event orientation to a service perspective. However, this cannot be done effectively without considering the pragmatics of event-driven business processes. This paper first introduces a design method for event-driven business processes based on an integrative event ontology. This method is confronted with communication-oriented approaches from the Language/Action Perspectiv (LAP). It is shown that a combination is possible and in fact beneficial. However, a generalization of the traditional LAP approach is needed.
