This paper describes a business app approach that is used within the Logistics Mall to develop and to execute autonomous IT services. These services are called “Apps” because they focus on a single business function. In this paper the three different kinds of business apps and the architectural components are described based on continually changing logistics requirements. The key aspect of this article is the Workbasket component for apps, including a graphical user interface to manage a task list.
