Service brokering has an increasingly prominent role in bridging the gap between business requirement and technology enablement. We propose the concept of service value brokering (SVB) to fulfil the possible missing linkages between business and technology layer. In this paper, we modeled a SVB Web service as an integration of two layers with the business interface (BIF) and the technical interface (TIF). With this distinction, Web service compositions can map to two layers of compositions at…

Value-driven service matching and bundling via a service value broker

This paper presents the idea of a Service Value Broker (SVB), that performs value-driven service matching and bundling and shows how value can be calculated and integrated at the business layer.

Implementation of Aspect-oriented Business Process Models with Web Services

This work proposes an architecture for service discovery capable of selecting web services that implement crosscutting concerns and meet the goals established in the aspect modeling phase, executing them accordingly with a prioritization.



Service broker architecture: Location business case and mashups

This article presents the concept and an actual implementation of a specific service broker: a location service broker and presents a sample mashup called MoPoint that was implemented to better demonstrate the functionality of the service broker.

This paper proposes a broker-based framework to facilitate dynamic integration and adaptation of QoS-aware Web services with end-to-end QoS constraints and considers both functional and QoS characteristics of Web services to identify the optimal business process solutions.

Service Value Broker Patterns: An Empirical Collection

This paper focuses on enumerating collected SVBs empirically with initial analysis on their composition manners and predicts that the results will play a dominating role in fueling a coming E-service Economics era.

Service Value Broker Patterns: Integrating Business Modeling and Economic Analysis with Knowledge Management

This work proposes to work towards a value driven design based solution through introducing a form of service design patterns: the service value broker (SVB) patterns to shorten the distance from economical analysis to IT implementation.

Design and implementation of a service-oriented business rules broker

This paper proposes the design and implementation of a service-oriented approach on how to integrate different heterogeneous business rule engines by using the business rules broker architecture and presents a method to automatically expose the rule-based business knowledge as Web services by generating the Web service code at design-time.

Cloud Service Negotiation: A Research Roadmap

A tradeoff negotiation approach for Cloud services, which can achieve a higher utility, and some ideas to solve QoS enforcement, and balance utility and success rate for QoS negotiation are given.

A Framework for Optimal Service Selection in Broker-Based Architectures with Multiple QoS Classes

This paper considers a broker-based architecture for service composition, focusing on the service selection problem and assuming that the broker supports different QoS classes, where each QoS class is modeled by suitable constraints.

A QoS Broker Based Architecture for Dynamic Web Service Selection

The QoS broker based architecture for dynamic Web service selection is proposed which facilitates the requester to specify his/her QoS requirements along with functional requirements and the paper presents the web service selection mechanism which selects the best (most suitable) Web service based on the requesters's functional and quality requirements.

Mobile-Agent-Based Web Service Composition

This paper defines “planning” to specify the logic actions of mobile agent so as to execute the WSC automatically, and gives the process mapping rules to convert the specification of WSC to the planning, and the behavior matching algorithms to map the planning to the physical behaviors of agents.
