Towards Secured and Interoperable Business Services

Due to structural changes in the market, from mass customisation to increased interest in product-services management, an exponential growth of a service ecosystem will emerge in the coming years. This shift in the economy creates a need for instant and ondemand collaborative organisations which involve radical changes in the organizational structure of enterprises, increasing the need for business interoperability. Unfortunately, existing enterprise engineering approaches and information systems technologies lack the intrinsic agility and adaptability features required by these service-based collaborative organisations. To overcome these limits, we introduce a new approach called the Enterprise Urbanism Concept to reorganize enterprises into sets of interoperable industrial services. This new approach relies on the extension of the concept of information system urbanism in order to take into account industrial constraints while reorganising service business units. Nevertheless, despite this intrinsic partner reorganisation, instant and on-demand collaborative organisations can be limited due to a lack of trust between partners. To overcome these limits, we reinforce our approach by clearly assessing contextual security policies based on the patrimony of a company and technological security components. These components can be dynamically added in respect to the collaboration context when organising a consistent chain of industrial services.
