>> Sciences -- Ontological Implications of SOA
>> Traditionally, trading partners -- both within and between firms –
>> trafficked in bundled tangible products like consumer goods or
>> partially assembled finished goods. Many early e-commerce standards
>> assumed implicitly product-based exchanges.
>> Increasingly however, the growth in exchange and bundling of
>> *Services* in the US and in other economies has supplanted tangible
>> goods as the raison d’etre of international and domestic commerce.
>> Estimates of the percentage of the gross domestic product of the US
>> due to services (as opposed to goods) range as high as 80%. This
>> trend has led to increased interest in services and the establishment
>> of new research centers like the proposed "Center for Services
>> Sciences" at U.C. Berkeley. A good of overview of such trends is the
>> brief article by Henry Chesbrough:
>> In e-commerce, this growth in service provision has been mirrored by
>> the advent of Service-Oriented Architectures which support integration
>> and creation of composite solutions (bundles of services) from
>> loosely-coupled components assembled both within an enterprise
>> (outputs from legacy applications) and outside of the enterprise
>> (typically XML-based Web services).
>> Whether or not the integrated services originate from incompatible
>> operations inside the firm or from incompatible vendor interfaces from
>> outside the firms, semantic inconsistencies, redundancies, and
>> discrepancies make the vision of integrated services an ontological
>> problem. The purpose of this panel is to explore the ontological
>> implications of service Sciences in general and of Service-Oriented
>> Architectures in particular. We will start our Ontolog session with
>> some general comments from notable practitioners in the SOA and
>> ontology areas. We will then open up the discussion to more general
>> comments and critiques.
>> Please mark your calendars now. I'll have the wiki session page up
>> shortly with more details. =ppy
