    Virtual enterprises or organisations (VO) have been the focus of research for over a decade. Although proprietary implementations of VO management tools exist, secure tools based on interoperating open standards are not yet available. The open standards on which to build them are just being released as reliable implementations. The requirements of VOs for trust and security are presented, which le... View full abstract»

    When Web services are composed, transactions are needed to maintain the consistency of the distributed data in all but the most trivial cases. Today's Web service transaction specifications still leave some issues unresolved, e.g., the specification of quality of service aspects. Therefore, we propose a modeling methodology that forces the software architect to address such issues at an early stag... View full abstract»

    Web service protocol standards should be unambiguous and provide a complete description of the allowed behavior of the protocols' participants. Implementation of such protocols is an error-prone process, firstly because of the lack of precision and completeness of the standards, and secondly because of erroneous transformation of semantics from the specification to the final implementation. Applyi... View full abstract»

    The concept of MDA (model driven architecture) aims at the goal of longevity (through business logic and architecture migration between different platforms) and quality improvement (through raising the level of abstraction). In the context of business process modeling and execution a frictionless mapping between high level, platform independent business process definition and platform specific, ex... View full abstract»

    In this paper we present a case example of how heterogeneous services and technologies can be integrated. We show a service-oriented architecture based on Web services to perform specific operations, issued by distributed processes through different protocols (HTTP, POPS, RMI and SMS), on a particular ERP system, namely the SAP R/3 system. The architecture results from the integration of two diffe... View full abstract»

    Business process modeling (BPM) is one of the key factors in defining service-oriented solutions for business collaborations. Like in traditional software engineering there is a need for adaptable methodologies to develop information and communication technology (ICT) systems supporting collaborative business processes. In this work we introduce a categorization for the classification of modeling ... View full abstract»

    Business rules define or constrain some business. Many different business rules engines exist to capture and manage the rules that comprise ones business. The lack of standards in the business rule area leads to different engine implementations and various rule representation formats. Furthermore, accessing rule-based knowledge in a uniform way from different heterogeneous applications in an enter... View full abstract»

    This paper describes an algorithm optimizing the discovery process for composed semantic Web services. The algorithm can be used to improve discovery of appropriate component services at invocation time. It performs semantic matchmaking of goals of a composed service to appropriate component services at publishing time. The semantic discovery problem at invocation time is therefore reduced to a se...

    Web services are software artifacts that can be accessed over the Internet. They can be seen as pay-per-view functionalities that are exposed by some service providers. If there are multiple providers for a Web service, then both the quality and price of the service become key factors when determining which provider to choose. We consider the problem of service allocation for multiple correlated W... View full abstract»

    Collaborative product commerce (CPC) is established to support the collaboration among the product design, product manufacturing, sales, marketing, services and so on. It is a one-off, dynamic process in order to respond the requirements of market. How to make a good notation about the requirements of CPC and collaboration relationships among the collaborators is becoming an important issue. It is... View full abstract»

    In this paper, we present a system for traceability in the food supply chain. The system is able to systematically store information about products and processes operating on products throughout the entire supply chain from farm suppliers to retailers. The system manages quality information too. Thanks to the use of the electronic business using extensible markup language (ebXML) standard, the tra... View full abstract»

    Electronic contracts play a key role in the automation of information technology (IT) processes by establishing a common context and a formal set of mutual agreements and expectations between the various parties involved in today's enterprise applications. We describe a novel approach for applying different types of electronic contracts to a complex IT management scenario with a specific focus on ... View full abstract»

    In this paper we have developed a research model that illustrates the role of IT and knowledge management in building an agile operation. Acknowledging that there is more than one dimension to business agility, we focus on operational agility as a catalyst to enforce quality, cost effectiveness, and delivery, thereby meeting organizational objectives. To develop our model of agility, we build on e... View full abstract»

    Total cost of ownership (TCO) is of interest to business and academic communities because it expands the understanding of the real cost of technology beyond purchase cost. The dominant Gartner Group model describes 'hard' and 'soft' costs, including acquisition, control and operational costs. Such metrics though tend to focus on conventional, abstract categories of cost defined by accounting and m... View full abstract»

    In this paper we introduce a new interpretation of business and IT agility - a calculus of business change and the resultant IT change. We argue that business agility, the ability to respond with "smooth and dexterous performance", derives from a coordination structure for the business with strong implications for day to day operations. We relate the argument to an operational modeling approach th... View full abstract»

    Agility in IT services or business is closely linked with the ability to quickly compose new offerings to match specific and varying demands. A modular architecture is a key enabler for this ability. In this paper we provide a brief introduction how the principle of modularity may be applied to business services. We then present a proposal how modular business services can be modeled using SeeMe, ... View full abstract»
