Business-aware management: The next frontier for web services

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Web services were born to enable application integration across corporations. However, with time, people are starting to realize that the Web services paradigm carries many implications and opens other possibilities. One of the most significant and least explored is the revolutionary role that Web services can play in improving the way enterprise applications are managed. In particular, Web services - especially when used in conjunction with business intelligence techniques - facilitate business-aware management, which refers to assessing the impact of IT operations from a business perspective and, conversely, to correcting and optimizing IT operations based on business objectives. This is crucial for every corporation, as it aligns IT operations with business goals. This talk will describe the opportunities that Web services bring in this space and the challenges that have to be solved in developing business-aware Web services middleware.
