As an essential part of mobile service-orientated computing, life cycle management allows service providers (SPs) and mobile network operators (MNOs) to manage services provisioning, launch new service offers, maintain them, and, finally, to withdraw them or improve them. This is vital because services are launched rapidly and life cycle steps are becoming shorter. To address this need, this paper proposes services life cycle management interfaces for context-aware services. SPs need automated mechanisms that conform to the standard practices and emerging requirements of the mobile industry. Since context-awareness and personalized features add agility to mobile services, they must be reflected in the life cycle management, which is one of the strong themes in this paper and novelty of the interfaces presented. Key stakeholders and their requirements are analyzed. Analysis results are used as a guide for the development of interfaces. Therefore the work is readily adaptable in a real-life situation
