The initial visionary promise of Service Oriented Computing (SOC) was a world of cooperating services, loosely coupled to flexibly create dynamic business processes and agile applications that may span organisations and heterogeneous computing platforms but can nevertheless adapt quickly and autonomously to changes of requirements or context. Today, the influence of SOC goes far beyond Web services and cloud computing and significantly affects a number of disciplines, such as business process modelling/management and Web2.0-style applications. In spite of wide acceptance, a number challenges remains.
