Future, computation, storage and communication services will be highly pervasive: users' devices, smart objects, machines, platforms and the surrounding space will create a highly decentralized common pool of real and virtual resources interconnected by dynamic networks of networks. This trend, along with the evolutions of architecture of participations and “Everything As A Service” approach promoted by Cloud Computing, will enable the emergence of pervasive service ecosystems, where several Players cooperate to produce, combine and consume services. This evolution will yield a variety of challenges in both service delivery and service management, requiring solutions able to master complexity, dependability, and behavioural stability in complex and dynamic systems in the absence of a centralized control point. In this position paper, we introduce a novel decentralised architectural solution exploiting autonomic principles. The proposed architecture constitutes a new self-organized and self-managed service delivery environment enabling the creation and maintenance of pervasive service ecosystems.
