On IoT-services: Survey, Classification and Enterprise Integration
This paper presents the results of a recent survey the authors conducted on the usage of services and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) within Internet of Things (IoT) related public funded projects and the research community, in general. They identified the lack of a coherent definition and classification of IoT services, as it would be necessary to contribute to service science in general. They therefore present a definition of IoT services and classify them based on the relationship to a physical entity and their lifecycle. The usefulness of this is abstraction is then shown on the example of business process modelling and Enterprise SOA integration.
