With the boom of telecom value-added services, operators and service providers have to face the challenge how to reduce the development cost and time to market of creating new services. Such reduction is expected to be 1 or 2 orders of magnitude from months or weeks to days, even hours. In traditional service creation environment, a full lifecycle of requirements analyzing, design, development, testing and deployment always has to be undergone. It is inevitable that mass resources including specialists and time are involved. Some technologies have been developed to speed up single steps, for example BPEL based orchestration technique and tools are already used to reduce the cost in design and development stages while the creation procedure is still rely on IT specialist. In this paper, we present an idea to shorten and simplify the whole service creation lifecycle to reach the reduction target by building a template based service creation environment. A model which separate process definition and service parameter are used to achieve rapid development and automatic deployment.
