Methodological Support for the Design of Enterprise Information Systems with SDBS: Towards Distributed, Service-Oriented and Context-Aware Solutions

Boris Shishkov

Abstract

Taking in consideration the inability of traditional software development methods to meet to a full extent some new demands, such as ones related to service-orientation and context-awareness, we suggest in this paper directions to enrich software development methods, for (partially) resolving this drawback. We introduce and briefly discuss the SDBC approach – ‘SDBC – Software Derived from Business Components’, mentioning as well actual related work that is concerned with the alignment between business process modeling and software specification. We then discuss two of the most important challenges of current software development, namely adaptability (envisioning distribution and context-awareness as desired properties) and service-orientation. Based on this, we derive some actual solution directions that concern software development. We consider this as a contribution that relates to the further software development trends.
