Title: Large scale dynamic and collaborative systems: Present and future

Abstract: The maturation of service choreographies empowers the creation and operation of large scale and complex distributed software systems with collaborative and adaptive characteristics. Such systems appear in different areas of interest, e.g. pervasive systems and scientific workflows. The easy availability of resources on demand through cloud computing allow for scaling the infrastructure required for their instrumentation. At the same time, however, a number of challenges arise related to the cloudification of the necessary middleware and the related trade-offs between cost and performance of such systems. In this talk we discuss our effort towards addressing these challenges, as well as present a vision for a next generation of widely distributed, large scale systems which combine different computing paradigms.
Vasilios Andrikopoulos is assistant professor at the University of Groningen, where he is a member of the Software Engineering and Architecture group in the Johann Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science. His research is in the area of software architectures for service-oriented, cloud-based, and hybrid systems and infrastructures, as well as software engineering with an emphasis on evolution and adaptation. He received his PhD from Tilburg University, the Netherlands. He has experience in teaching database systems, software modeling and programming, business process management and integration, and service engineering. He has participated in a number of EU projects, including the Network of Excellence S-Cube.

Title: Enterprise Computing and Networked Business Paradigms

Abstract: In recent years, we have seen the emergence of new business paradigms that highlight the importance of business network thinking. These business paradigms stress the idea that business thinking should not be based primarily on an intra-organizational focus, but rather on the relationships with business organizations, such as collaborators or customers. For example, the service-dominant paradigm is centered at networked co-creation of value for customers through services. The recent outcome economy paradigm revolves around facilitating measurable business results for customers. Combining these paradigms with the concept ofagile business leads to dynamic business networks as a first order citizen in business engineering. These developments have a strong impact on the domain of enterprise computing: on the one hand, it requires an outside-in engineering to complement the traditional inside-out approach; on the other hand, it requires a decoupling of strategic resource-based design from tactic value-based design. In this presentation, networked business paradigms are illustrated and their impact on enterprise computing is explored.
