Abstract

This paper extends state-of-the-art design methodologies for classical information systems by introducing an innovative methodology for designing service-oriented information systems. Service-oriented information systems can be viewed as information systems adhering to the novel service-oriented paradigm, to which a plethora of novel technologies, such as Web Services, Grid Services and Cloud Computing, currently marry. On the other hand, actual state-of-the-art literature encloses few papers that focus the attention on this yet-interesting research challenge. With the aim of fulfilling this gap, in this paper we provide a process-driven methodology for modeling service-oriented complex information systems, and we prove its effectiveness and reliability on a comprehensive case study represented by a real-life research project.
