Abstract [en]

A broader use of e-services for cross enterprise collaboration requires the services to be analysed and designed with a clear business focus. From a business perspective, the e-services must support the primary values that an organization strives for. From an operational perspective, the e-services must be devised such that they support the day-to-day activities in the business. In this paper, we report on an effort to use value models and "service process models" as the foundation for analysis and design of e-services. Value models facilitate the exploration of new e-services, whereas service process models relate e-services to specific activities in an organization's business processes. We elicited a set of principles and models for analysis and design of e-services, and we discussed the experiences of practicing the principles in a project from the health sector. Having a well-defined alignment of software and business values provides benefits for service requirement gathering, service identification and service validation.

Abstract [en]

The concepts of processes and services can be used to structure both businesses and software systems. From a business perspective, the use of processes promises efficient management of organizations. From a software perspective, executable process descriptions provide a way to structure software systems according to the business process the systems should support. Furthermore, the concept of software services allows systems to be partitioned in a modular fashion, thereby enabling large-scale system integration on a technical level. By combining process descriptions with software services in service-based processes, it is feasible to address both business and more technical software needs.

Aligning the business and software perspectives of processes and software services is, however, challenging, since implemented executable processes and software services need to cater for operational and strategic business needs as well as existing legacy software systems.

In this thesis, several instruments are presented that aim at aiding the design and evolution of service-based processes. The aligning of operational business and software perspectives on process descriptions is addressed by the introduction of business and technical process model levels. These levels can be aligned by the use of a set of model transformations and associated transformation rules. Furthermore, the aligning is aided by introducing means for achieving flexibility on both the business and technical model levels. The development of service-based processes from a strategic business point of view is aided by the introduction of novel models and methods for goal-based design of software services. Taken together, the instruments can be used for the design and evolution of service-based processes.
