Title: Switching Parties in a Collaboration at Run-time

Abstract: During the execution of a service collaboration, a party may drop out for technical reasons or business reasons. In that case, that party must be replaced in the collaboration, at run-time, by a new party. Ideally, the new party can pick up where the old party left. Currently, algorithms exist that can help with the selection and adaptation of the new party to incorporate it in the collaboration. Also, algorithms exist that can help to pick up a business process where it left off.
However, to the best of our knowledge, no algorithms exist that can help a new party in a collaboration to pick up where the old party left off. This paper fills that gap, by providing an overview of the components and operations that are necessary to enable a party in a collaboration to be replaced by another party at run-time. In addition the paper presents a strategy, and the corresponding algorithms, that realize the architecture. As a proof-of-concept, a tool was developed that implements this strategy

Research presentation on “Service-Dominant Business Design”

Monday, May 12, 12:30-13:30h in Pav. K16, Egon Luftenegger gives a guided tour through his PhD thesis “Service-Dominant Business Design”. See below for the abstract.

Service-Dominant Business Design

The Service-Dominant Business Design Framework is presented as steps for doing business design by using four layers: Service-Dominant Strategy, Service-Dominant Business Models, Business Service Compositions and Business Services. The layers of the framework were developed as a set of tools for supporting the Service-Dominant Business Design process. These tools were constructed by using Action Design Research (ADR) and literature review as research methods. By using ADR, Egon worked inside an asset-based financial services company with global footprint for constructing and testing artifacts as management tools that support the Service-Dominant Business Design process.

This presentation is composed by two parts:

Part I : short presentation
Part II: guided tour through the PhD thesis “Service-Dominant Business Design”

In part I, I will present shortly about the whole PhD thesis. In Part II, I will zoom in the PhD thesis about aspects not covered in previous presentations within the IS group.
