Background and Goals
The "Recent Trends in SOA Based Information Systems" (RTSOABIS’10) is a new Workshop joint to ICEIS 2010.

Service Oriented Architecture is an architectural approach to designing, building, and deploying information systems such that the system is created from simpler manageable building blocks, offering "services". Each service implements a discrete piece of business functionality. These services can then be mixed and matched to create entirely new applications or to deliver new business capabilities. As a concept, SOA is not new. It is a product of the evolution of IT architecture and distributed computing concepts. However, it has only become a reality over the last few years because of the emergence of standards and maturation of supporting technology. The Internet has played a significant role in the evolution of these standards, allowing (Web) services to interoperate globally within and across the boundaries of large and small organizations. Without standards, it would be difficult for services to communicate and interact with each other. Consequently, the aforementioned sharing, reuse and combination of services to create business processes on an as-needed basis would not be possible.

At its core, service orientation is about aligning technology to efficiently and flexibly support the process and performance needs of the business. It means a technology capability that:

  • Meets the process and performance needs of the business
  • Adapts quickly to changing business needs
  • Can incorporate new technologies to deliver new business capability
Under conventional approaches to building IT systems, an application typically supports a pre-defined set of business requirements (such as sales orders or accounting). Whenever a new business need arises, organizations build or install new applications. This is highly inefficient especially when the different applications perform similar tasks and share the same data. Hence, SOA provides both IT flexibility and business agility.

SOA is an industrial reality with projects and commercial offers. Moreover, related advanced topics are numerous as : Cloud Computing, Grid, Green IT, Software as a Service, Aspect Based Services, service based Multi Agent Systems ...

This first workshop on Recent Trends in SOA Based Information Systems provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to present results, applications, and experiences in software based on SOA and Web services. The organizing committee welcomes high quality contributions that describe original and unpublished works in the field of services-based application engineering in terms of design, development, testing, and deployment, Enterprise Service Bus...

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • SOA Architecture & Design
  • Service Modeling & BPM
  • The Business of Service Orientation
  • SOA Project Delivery & Methodology
  • Service Programming
  • SOA Governance
  • SOA Design Patterns & Service Engineering
