There seems to be a classification of processes in IT. For example, "business process" refers to the collection of tasks done by organization members / software systems to achieve a goal.

If a process is completely automated and carried out by software (no people involved) what is the process called? Say we have a Web service A and service B online and we have a process that automatically uses both in achieving a goal.

I googled for "Software process" but the results are not what I am looking for (e.g waterfall)

My apologies if this is not the correct forum to ask this question. Thanks in advance

"Business process" can also be applied. Or you could call it "automated process" or "automated business process" or "software processing" or "service" or any of a number of other things.

In other words: these terms do not have a precise mathematical/technical definition. So, define your terms, and use them consistently. This is not a technical question (and this site is better-suited for technical questions, not terminology questions).
