For companies managing complex Web service compositions, challenges arise which go far beyond simple bilateral contract monitoring. For example, it is not only important to determine whether or not a component (i.e., Web service) in a composition is performing properly, but also to understand what the impact of its performance is on the overall service composition. To tackle this challenge, in previous work the authors developed MoDe4SLA which allows managing and monitoring dependencies between services in a composition. This paper empirically validates MoDe4SLA through an extensive and interactive experiment among 34 participants.
