S-Discovery: A Behavioral and Quality-based Service Discovery on the Cloud

Abstract

Cloud computing recently emerged as a paradigm providing computer power and storage as a utility that is consumed on demand (following the footsteps of other utilities, like electricity). Recently, a new service delivery mode emerged: Business Process as a Service (BPaaS). As a consequence, process models repositories will be developed allowing this new type of services to be published by process providers and discovered by enterprises wanting to outsource some of, or parts of, their processes. In this paper we present the S-Discovery framework allowing to find in such repositories processes that could satisfy user functional and no-functional requirements.
