Motivation and Goals

Service-oriented systems pose novel challenges to software engineering, stemming from the lack of homogeneity of their basic components and from the requirement of being able to accommodate unprecedented levels of changes and dynamic evolution. Increasingly, services will be offered via the Internet through emerging delivery models such as software-as-a-service (SaaS), business process outsourcing (BPO), cloud services and third-party services. This means that future software systems will increasingly rely on the provisioning of services, which are no longer under the software engineer’s control. Those trends are reflected in the special theme of the 4th edition of PESOS: “Internet of Services”.

The goal of PESOS 2012 is to bring together software engineering researchers from academia and industry, as well as practitioners working in the areas of service-oriented systems to discuss research challenges, recent developments, novel application scenarios, as well as methods, techniques, experiences and tools to support engineering, evolution and adaptation of large-scale, highly-dynamic service-oriented systems.

For the first time, PESOS will feature a special session on “the quest for case studies”. The special session aims to serve as a forum for researchers and practitioners sharing this vision and willing to contribute with their effort and experience. The ultimate goal is to create the reference set of case studies for the research community in service-oriented systems, hosted on a publicly available repository (not unlike the PROMISE data repository).  The session will be organized as a working session in which participants can present their experience and the lessons learned.

  • Intro from the chairs
  • Invited Talk: Carl Worms, Enterprise architect, Credit Suisse IT Private Banking: "An Internet of Services - Visions" (60 mins)
    • This invited keynote comprises a view in the glass bowl as seen by an enterprise architect working in a global enterprise which is one of the technology leaders in its industry.
    • Bio: Carl Worms is enterprise architect in Credit Suisse Private Banking IT with focus on strategy and architecture of software engineering processes. Since 1991, he worked in several large enterprises in the areas of software engineering methodology and software quality management. In 1993 he got the Walter Masing Award of the German Society for Quality with a paper on object orientation and automated testing. He joined Credit Suisse IT architecture in 1999 as leading methodologist and led the first software process improvement program from 2002-2005 and in 2007 the Quality Management organization. Since 2008 in his current position as process architect for IT private banking and region Switzerland, he developed the roadmap for the next 10 years for application development processes, methods and tools.
