A Network Centric Infrastructure for Decision Support Based on Service Integration
The importance of-fresh data is of paramount importance especially in missions involving safety/security critical context. The present infrastructure for service integration implements a one-time execution of a multi-task business process. Business process languages compose various services but the end-result corresponds to a static instance of the retrieved information. This modus operandi exhibits a crucial drawback. Actually, if a Decision Support System (DSS) is to be implemented on top of such integration infrastructure there will be no guarantee of data freshness. Current drawbacks and limitations can be leveraged through a rescue mission scenario, for example, which heavily depends on accurate data.
