Management of broadband convergence networks (BcN) and next generation services demands new organizational aspects also new descriptions of operations and management functions for supporting communications systems. The new organizational aspects are being engendered and supported simultaneously by the emerging information technologies and communications (ITC). This paper presents research challenges for facilitating autonomic management, defining aspects in the organizational view of service lifecycle and the control of pervasive services functions. The semantic control is done using semantic enrichment, with ontologies, for executing self- management operations and thus achieving the information interoperability necessary in pervasive applications. Ontology- based rules for service lifecycle control are presented and discussed and then a brief comparison in a management system between using policies without semantic enrichment and using ontology-based policies is depicted. The idea for supporting pervasive services and its management complexity follows the states streaked by ontology-based functions related to autonomic management principles for autonomic communications.
