Ziv Baida, Jaap Gordijn, Hans Akkermans, Hanne Saele, Andrei Z. Morch
2005 International Journal of E-Business Research  
The various services in the bundle may be offered by different suppliers. To enable this scenario, it is necessary that software can reason about customer needs and available service offerings.  ...  Its objective is to support prospective Website visitors in defining and buying service bundles that fit their specific needs and demands.  ...  FROM CUSTOMER NEEDS TO E-SERVICES In this chapter, we present a four-step approach (see Figure 1 ) to find alternative bundles of e-services that satisfy customer needs.  ...

An Ontological Approach for Eliciting and Understanding Needs in e-Services [chapter]

Ziv Baida, Jaap Gordijn, Hanne Sæle, Hans Akkermans, Andrei Z. Morch
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The ontology as well as the associated reasoning mechanisms are codified in RDFS to enable software support for need elicitation and service bundling.  ...  The lack of a good understanding of customer needs within eservice initiatives caused severe financial losses in the Norwegian energy sector, resulting in the failure of e-service initiatives offering  ...  Since demands are satisfied by outcomes (resources) provisioned by e-services, demands are a good starting point for finding service bundles that may satisfy higher needs.  ...

E3-Service - A Model-Based Approach for Generating Needs-Driven E-Service Bundles in a Networked Enterprise

Sybren de Kinderen, Jaap Gordijn
2008 European Conference on Information Systems  
To this end, we need a computer-processable theory, called an ontology, which is able to represent customer needs, and also facilitates computer-supported elicitation of needs.  ...  Part of the composition process is to elicit the customer need for an e-service bundle, and to facilitate this elicitation process by a web-enabled software component.  ...  This research has been partly funded by NWO/STW/Jacquard as the project VITAL.  ...

Towards Custom Cloud Services [chapter]

Steffen Haak, Stephan Grimm
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We therefore propose an ontology-based optimization framework allowing Cloud providers to find the best suiting resource composition based on an abstract request for a custom service.  ...  Current SaaS, PaaS and IaaS services are often found to be too inflexible to meet the diverse customer requirements regarding service composition and Quality-of-Service.  ...  Apparently there is a great business opportunity for Cloud providers who manage to offer Custom Cloud Services tailored to their customers' needs.  ...

2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Important trends are the bundling of services and a growing customer-need orientation.  ...  Thus, there is a need for a computational background for describing real-world services and applying knowledgebased technologies for reasoning about them: configuring composite services and analysing them  ...  On the second level, we define workflows for mapping e-services into Web Services executions. The e-services composition is supported by the opportunistic-reasoning platform.  ...
