The Logistics Mall—An IT-Architecture for Logistics-as-a-Product

Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes in Logistics book series (LNLO)

Abstract

The Logistics Mall extends the cloud service model from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to Business Process-as-a-Service (BPaaS). Its architecture, hence, spans from a web-based public B2B marketplace for simple apps, traditional applications and even logistics process templates to customer-specific cloud based execution environments for instantiated process models and therein included applications. For communication with the mall outside world a specific gateway is provided that controls inbound and outbound message flow.
