Services have become an impressive factor for growth and the creation of
jobs. 93% of the new jobs created in the U.S. between 1970 and 2000 are
jobs in services . Leading enterprises in the U.S. derive more than =20
50% of
their revenues from services. This applies not only to pure services =20
as transportation but also for material products that are augmented by
services such as maintenance, consulting and training. Through services,
enterprises stabilize their revenues. There is no accepted general
definition of service, but many definitions contain the idea, that a
service is "the application of specialized competences (knowledge and
skills) for the benefit of another entity, rather than the production of
units of output" . Services are more and more considered as part of a
so-called service system. A service system is defined "as a value
co-production configuration of people, technology, other internal and
external service systems, and shared information (such as language,
processes, metrics, prices, policies, and laws)".

Therefore it is no surprise that the term service has also become very
popular in enterprise computing. However, the term service may have
different meanings in enterprise computing. Three flavours of services =20=

be differentiated: technology services, software-services, and business
1. Technology services are more hardware flavoured services which are
provided using computers. They may have a human addressee but contain =20=

infrastructure services such as providing computing power, storage etc.
They are an important topic in management and practice collections =20
such as
ITILV3 or standards such as ISO/IEC 20000 have gained a high popularity.
2. Software services are managed in so-called
Service-Oriented-Architectures that are a popular paradigm for creating
enterprise software. A service in the context of SOA is a special kind =20=

interface for an encapsulated unit of software.
3. Business services are services which directly support business
processes. They may be further differentiated into those visible to the
customer and those that are not. Business processes can also be =20
dynamically (on-the-fly) using business services which are available =20
in a
repository for a given business domain.

In the field of Information Systems and -in a broader sense- Enterprise
Computing, the notion of "Enterprise modelling" refers to a collectionof
conceptual modelling techniques for describing different facets of the
organisation including operational (IS), organisational (business
processes, actors, flow of information etc), and teleological (purposes)
considerations. Existing enterprise modelling frameworks stress the
necessity of representing and structuring enterprise knowledge taking =20=

account all these facets in order to develop IS and IT architectures =20
enterprises need. The contribution of the software systems to the
realization of the business processes and consequently to the =20
objectives of
the company is of primary importance. A change in one of these facets of
the organization implies multiple impacts on the two other facets. In =20=

words, it seems unrealistic to consider an organizational change without
any impact on the information system or an evolution of the IS which =20
not call into question the processes or even the objectives of the

An enterprise architecture,,defines the interactions and articulations
between business and information technology and their alignment or
congruence. A service-oriented enterprise architecture uses services to
describe the articulations of business and information technology. It =20=

to identify the business services needed to support the business =20
of the enterprise, and to map the business services to technology and
software services . Technology and software services are both called IT
services in the following.

The enterprise computing systems which shall manage Service-oriented
Enterprise Architectures have to support the creation, administration =20=

execution of services. Thus, they must be able to store the service
definitions and make them available for a consumer in a service =20
The same applies to the so-called service-level agreements that define =20=

quality of service agreed upon with consumers. Upon a service request =20=

a consumer entity, the service support system has to monitor the =20
of the service-level agreements and also to provide remediation =20
which contain so-called escalation mechanisms. Furthermore, based on the
monitoring, improvement procedures shall be established.


The goal of the workshop is to clarify the relationship between business
process management and service provisioning. The objective of this =20
is twofold:
(i) To characterise the strong relationship existing between Business
Process Management (BPM) and Service oriented Enterprise Architecture =20=

(ii) To develop concepts and methods to assist the engineering and the
management of Service-Oriented Enterprise Architectures (SoEA) and their
support systems.


During the workshop we will discuss the following topics:

1. Service engineering
- Do we need new paradigms to cope with service engineering?
- How are business services discovered, defined, composed, adapted?
- How are business services assigned to business processes?
- How are technology-services discovered, defined, composed, adapted?
- How are technology-services assigned to business services?
- Are there design patterns for developing service-oriented systems?
- How can the MDA/MDD techniques and methods be applied for =20
- Which test methods exist for technology-services?
- How are business services and technology-services rolled out?
- Which change management procedures have to be applied during the
deployment of SoEA?

2. Service management
- Which benchmarks and key performance indicators should be applied to
- Which information system architectures are adequate for services?
- Which approaches exist for mastering the migration of legacy systems =20=

- Which triggers exist and what mechanisms should be applied for =20
- Which approaches exist for the continual improvement of services?
- Which evaluation and validation techniques can be applied for SoEA?

3. Alignment with business strategy
- Which interdependencies exist between services and business strategy?
- Which concepts and methods are necessary to align services with the
business strategy?
- Which new potentials to reengineer business processes are created by
- How are services aligned with compliance requirements?
- How are compliance and governance requirements enforced?


Full papers (8-10 pages in the IEEE-CS format) describing mature results
are sought. In addition, short papers (4 pages in the IEEE-CS format) =20=

be submitted to facilitate discussion of recent research results and
ongoing projects. The paper selection will be based upon the relevance =20=

of a
paper to the main topics, as well as upon its quality and potential to
generate relevant discussion.

All papers published in the EDOC 2009 workshop proceedings must be in =20=

IEEE Computer Society format (
information for authors). It is strongly recommended that all papers are
already in this format when they are first submitted to workshops. This
gives precise picture of the paper length and avoids rework if the =20
paper is

All papers will be peer reviewed based on the paper. Please submit your
paper to

Proceedings of EDOC 2009 workshops will be published after the =20
as ePub by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services =20
and included in the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) and the
IEEE Xplore. There will be one electronic volume containing proceedings
from all workshops.

At least one author of each accepted workshop paper will have to =20
for the whole EDOC 2009 conference and attend the workshop to present =20=

paper. Analogously to previous years, there will be no workshop-only
registration at EDOC 2009. If a paper is not presented in the =20
workshop, it
will be removed from the workshop proceedings published in the IEEE =20
digital library.


All papers will be published in the workshop wiki before the workshop, =20=

that everybody can learn about the problems that are important for other
participants. The workshop will consist of long and short paper
presentations, brainstorming sessions and discussions. A workshop report
will be created collaboratively using the workshop wiki.
