Business Processes as a Service (BPaaS): A Model-Based Approach to align Business with Cloud offerings

  • 1. BOC Asset Management GmbH


Cloud computing proved to offer flexible IT solutions. Although large enterprises may benefit from this technology by educating their IT departments, SMEs are dramatically falling behind in cloud usage and hence lose the ability to efficiently adapt their IT to their business needs. This paper introduces the project idea of the H2020 project CloudSocket, by elaborating the idea of Business Processes as a Service (BPaaS), where concept models and semantics are applied to align business processes with Cloud deployed workflows. The hybrid usage of conceptual and semantic models introduce smart knowledge processing mechanisms to bridge the semantic gap from business requests to deployable workflow bundle. Ideas, Concept and technical issues are highlighted and first prototypes introduced for download.
