CASIA: A Context-Aware Approach for Service Identification Aligned to Business

Michel Antunes da Silva, Flavia Santoro, Leonardo Guerreiro Azevedo

Abstract

Organizations use services to support the implementation of their business process. Service requirements are identified at design time and developed for the application that implements the business process. This makes the process highly dependent on the service that supports it. In addition, due to changes in the business process, the supporting service might no longer adhere to business process at any time. Thus, it is needed to adapt the application that implements the business process to consume another service that best fits its needs. This paper describes an approach for flexible identification (discovery) of services available in service repositories according to the business context. This approach aims at discovering the most appropriate service to meet business requirements.
