    For business organisations to survive and compete successfully in the growing global economy, they must collaborate with one another and share not only the data, but also human and organisational knowledge captured in business rules, business processes and manual and automated operations. These organisational resources must be used to dynamically construct and process inter-organisational business processes to accommodate changes in different business environments. This paper presents an integrated business rule and process specification and a user interface tool for the specification of organisational resources. It also presents an event-triggered knowledge network system, which automatically translates different types of business rules and business processes into code and wraps the code as web services for uniform processing in a web service infrastructure. The system provides an event-triggered processing mechanism, which enables the integration and interoperation of business data, rules, processes and operations and the dynamic construction and processing of inter-organisational business processes.
