    Smart Houses in the Smart Grid and the Search for Value-Added Services in the Cloud of Things Era

    The smart grid is an emerging paradigm based on the introduction of sophisticated information and communication technologies coupled with the energy grid. Most of the ongoing research worldwide is focused too much on the smart metering, energy visualization as well as potential residential device management which are usually turning ON/OFF...

    Crossing the Chasm Between the Real World and Business Process Management

    Half-value periods of competitive advantages shrink and competitive edges need to be adjusted permanently. Agile business processes are hence needed. While agility is a core challenge in today's competitive business, software based business process modeling and execution approaches often refer to strict and inflexible formalization. Complementary, the authors propose an...

    Modeling Collaborative e-Business Processes in SME Environments

    Introducing process orientation to overcome the functional-oriented organizational structure was the main concern within enterprise during the last decade. The next wave of process-oriented enterprises deals with cross organization business processes characterized by high automation effort and supported by a wide penetration of e-Business technologies. In this paper, the authors...

    Improving Schema Matching with Linked Data

    With today's public data sets containing billions of data items, more and more companies are looking to integrate external data with their traditional enterprise data to improve business intelligence analysis. These distributed data sources however exhibit heterogeneous data formats and terminologies and may contain noisy data. In this paper, the...

    Performance Models of Storage Contention in Cloud Environments

    The authors propose simple models to predict the performance degradation of disk requests due to storage device contention in consolidated virtualized environments. Model parameters can be deduced from measurements obtained inside Virtual Machines (VMs) from a system where a single VM accesses a remote storage server. The parameterized model can...

    A Service-oriented Architecture for Emergency Management Systems

    The complexity and openness of today's modern societies result in the threat of serious cascading effects when natural disasters or terrorist attacks strike. Thus, there is a high demand for state of the art IT support in the field of emergency management systems. In this paper, the authors identify the...

    Secure Conjunctive Keyword Searches For Unstructured Text

    Searchable encryption allows a secret key holder to issue search tokens for keywords that enable other parties to perform equality comparisons with ciphertexts. Assume a set of text documents with overall w keywords where each document is associated with m of these (possibly identical) keywords. A querier is asking the...

    vBPMN: Event-Aware Workflow Variants by Weaving BPMN2 and Business Rules

    When work flows are modeled for practical use, work flow variants often have to be considered to t dynamically changing context factors. If there is a rich work flow context with a large value space, contemporary BPM solutions lack the support for on-the-y generated variants, requiring explicit one-by-one modeling instead....

    Flexible Workflows at Design-And Runtime Using BPMN2 Adaptation Patterns

    Flexible workflow management systems facilitate the adaptation of workflows to changing data contexts. They are however usually not aligned with industry standards and often entail the peril of uncontrolled execution variant growth. Therefore the authors present a novel approach relying on BPMN2 and business rules for workflow adaptation at design...

    Idea to Derive Security Policies From Collaborative Business Processes

    Collaborative business processes often consist of services provided by multiple business entities which agree to join business collaboration. To enable trustworthy and secure consumption and provisioning of services across organizational boundaries, security requirements must be carefully defined so as to be coherent, consistent, and in compliance with designed business processes....

    MAP-AMVA: Approximate Mean Value Analysis of Bursty Systems

    MAP queueing networks are recently proposed models for performance assessment of enterprise systems, such as multi-tier applications, where workloads are significantly affected by burstiness. Although MAP networks do not admit a simple product-form solution, performance metrics can be estimated accurately by linear programming bounds, yet these are expensive to compute...

    Blending Complex Event Processing with the RETE Algorithm

    Modern event-driven applications implement sophisticated and highly specialized algorithms for detecting and correlating events from event streams or clouds. The correlation logic and resulting actions are declaratively defined as EA (Event Action) rules. An EA language allows the definition of complex correlation rules with the help of logical, temporal, content-based...

    The Internet of Things in an Enterprise Context

    In this paper, the authors put the Internet of Things in a wider context: how it relates to the Future Internet overall and where the business value lies so that it will become interesting for enterprises to invest in it. Real-World Awareness and Business Process Decomposition are the two major...

    Business Process Modeling, Task Management, and the Semantic Link

    In this paper, the authors describe how to combine web services and task patterns in a joint infrastructure. The central intention is to make up executable business processes by including generic pattern based web services which establish a relation between the service infrastructure and task management. This approach significantly increases...

    Integrated Configuration of Enterprise Systems for Interoperability - Towards Process Model and Business Document Specification Alignment

    Enterprise Systems (ES) can be understood as the de facto standard for holistic operational and managerial support within an organization. Most commonly ES are offered as commercial off-the-shelf packages, requiring customization in the user organization. This process is a complex and resource-intensive task, which often prevents Small and Midsize Enterprises...
