This paper presents a business event analysis classification framework, based on five business criteria. As a result, we are able to distinguish thirteen event types distributed over four categories, i.e. truthful, invisible, false and unobserved events. Currently, several of these event types are not commonly dealt with in business process management (BPM) and analytics (BPA)
research. Based on the proposed framework we situate the different BPM and BPA research areas and indicate the potential issues for each field. A business case is elaborated to demonstrate the relevance of the event classification framework.
