Highly mature service-oriented architecture systems have great flexibility and reusability, and can align business processes and information technologies with high quality. Service identification plays a key role in this respect. Further, of the different methods employed, the most popular and preferred is process-oriented service identification. However, the absence of dependency analysis in the business process management domain remains a challenge for the quality of future systems. In this paper, we propose a goal-oriented dependency analysis for service identification via business process modeling. In our analysis solution, we apply a dependency tree featuring the relationships among requirements. The dependency relations are analyzed to create business processes via scenarios comprising requirements and process fragments.
