Area: Architecting Software as Service
Code: SWA-SL

Project description:
In a Software as Service (SaS) approach, a provider can realize and maintain business processes efficiently, that can be used by different consumers. The research project aims to offer a software engineering approach to build and maintain SaS platforms in the domain of local e-Government, emphasizing on offering powerful configuration possibilities. This process will leverage a number of disciplines and technologies:
– Quality-driven architecting to ensure the satisfaction of critical Quality Attributes.
– Variability management to handle configuration at the three aforementioned levels.
– Model-driven development at the business, architecture and services level.

A pilot in the application of health care for local e-Government in the Netherlands will be the testbed for the technologies developed in the project. The consortium includes industrial partners and local government end users.
