n South African Journal of Industrial Engineering - A meta-modelling service paradigm for cloud computing and its implementation

 

Abstract

Service integrators seek opportunities to align the way they manage resources in the service supply chain. Many business organisations can operate new, more flexible business processes that harness the value of a service approach from the customer's perspective. As a relatively new concept, cloud computing and related technologies have rapidly gained momentum in the IT world. This article seeks to shed light on service supply chain issues associated with cloud computing by examining several interrelated questions: service supply chain architecture from a service perspective; the basic clouds of service supply chain; managerial insights into these clouds; and the commercial value of implementing cloud computing. In particular, to show how those services can be used, and involved in their utilisation processes, a hypothetical meta-modelling service of cloud computing is proposed. Moreover, the paper defines the managed cloud architecture for a service vendor or service integrator in the cloud computing infrastructure in the service supply chain: IT services, business services, business processes, which create atomic and composite software services that are used to perform business processes with business service choreographies.

Diensintegreeders is op soek na geleenthede om die bestuur van hulpbronne in die diensketting te belyn. Talle organisasies kan nuwe, meer buigsame besigheidprosesse, wat die waarde van 'n diensaanslag uit die kliënt se oogpunt inspan, gebruik. As 'n relatiewe nuwe konsep het wolkberekening en verwante tegnologie vinnig momentum gekry in die IT-wêreld. Die artikel poog om lig te werp op kwessies van die diensketting wat verband hou met wolkberekening deur verskeie verwante vrae te ondersoek: dienkettingargitektuur uit 'n diensoogpunt; die basiese wolk van die diensketting; bestuursinsigte oor sodanige wolke; en die kommersiële waarde van die implementering van wolkberekening. 'n Hipotetiese metamodelleringsdiens van wolkberekening word aanbeveel, veral om te toon hoe die dienste gebruik kan word. Die artikel definieer ook die bestuurde wolkargitektuur vir 'n diensverskaffer of -integreerder in die wolkberekeningsinfrastruktuur van die diensketting: IT-dienste, besigheidsdienste, besigheidsprosesse, wat atoom- en saamgestelde programmatuurdienste voortbring, wat gebruik word om besigheidsprosesse met besigheidsdiensontwerpe uit te voer.
