Logging a heterogenous-system workflow in a standardised provenance format


Often heterogeneous workflows are built over time using multiple, legacy systems. These systems may be required for use but don't integrate well and are not capable of standardised reporting (logging). We would like to generate uniform logs for the systems using a standardised provenance data model, such as PROV, and have those logs available for querying to see what workflows have run and what steps they ran when they did.
