Towards Business-Oriented Monitoring and Adaptation of Distributed Service-Based Applications from a Process Owner’s Viewpoint
Dynamically changing economic environments require distributed Service-Based Applications (SBAs) to be highly flexible and reactive, so that the utilization of monitoring and adaptation functionalities becomes imperative. While approaches for monitoring functional and non-functional properties from the operational environment have gained a certain degree of maturity, there is still a lack of reflecting business-related aspects. This paper introduces the vision of a generic monitoring and adaptation framework focusing on the interactions between different abstraction layers of distributed SBAs. Starting from the business model perspective, strategic decisions are specified by the business model design in order to constitute the scope for possible operational adaptations at the business process, service and resource layers. Additionally, the monitoring of technical and business-related aspects affects not only the operational layers, but also the business model layer in the long-term.
