Blueprinting Approach in Support of Cloud Computing

Developing and deploying Service-Based Applications (SBAs) using different Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offerings from multiple providers in the cloud is still not possible, since current cloud service offerings are often provided as monolithic, one-size-fits-all solutions and give little or no room for customization. This limits the ability of SBA developers to configure and syndicate offerings from multiple SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS providers to address their application requirements. Furthermore, combining different independent cloud services necessitates a uniform description format that facilitates the design, customization, and composition.
