Theme & Objectives

Today, services are used as a core component or utility of business operations and offer programmatic interfaces to applications to exploit these services. The majority of attention on SOS has been contemplated on its related technical standards and technology integration. However, many of today’s available services are not considered as providing relevant business value as their use by third-party clients have unclear terms and conditions with unknown risk. The trend of software transforming to the service-oriented paradigm demands a new way of business model reassurance to manage services operation, deployment, and longevity in the context of business ecosystems.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in services development across business domains. Its focus is on creating business value through services and, looking beyond individual businesses, fostering the growth of a service ecosystem.
