Abstract

As more and more service providers choose to deliver services on common Cloud infrastructures, it becomes important to formally represent knowledge in a services catalog to enable automatic answering of user requests and sharing of building blocks across service offerings. In this paper, we propose an ontology-driven methodology for formal modeling of the service offerings and associated processes.

Keywords
