    This paper presents a service-oriented digital government infrastructure focused on efficiently providing customized services to senior citizens. We designed and developed a Web Service Management System (WSMS), called WebSenior, which provides a service-centric framework to deliver government services to senior citizens. The proposed WSMS manages the entire life cycle of third-party web services.... View full abstract»

    Business processes are increasingly distributed and open, making them prone to failure. Monitoring is, therefore, an important concern not only for the processes themselves but also for the services that comprise these processes. We present a framework for multilevel monitoring of these service systems. It formalizes interaction protocols, policies, and commitments that account for standard and ex... View full abstract»

    The effective use of services to compose business processes in services computing demands that the Quality of Services (QoS) meet consumers' expectations. Automated web-based negotiation of Service Level Agreements (SLA) can help define the QoS requirements of critical service-based processes. We propose a novel trusted Negotiation Broker (NB) framework that performs adaptive and intelligent bilat... View full abstract»

    Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) is emerging as the next inevitable technology for application developments. One fundamental issue of SOA is service composition, i.e., to seamlessly compose distributed services into more complex applications. In the mobile environment, a service composition may face disruptions caused by the movement of both users and service providers. Thus, a dependable servi... View full abstract»

    In the world where on-demand and trustworthy service delivery is one of the main preconditions for successful business, service and business process availability is of the paramount importance and cannot be compromised. For that reason service availability is coming into central focus of the IT operations and management research and practice. Still, our understanding of service and process availab...

    The relationship-focused and credential-focused identity managements are both user-centric notions in Service-oriented architecture (SOA). For composite services, pure user-centric identity management is inefficient because each subservice may authenticate and authorize users and users need participate in every identity provisioning transaction. If the above two paradigms are unified into the univ... View full abstract»
