Support for the Business Motivation Model in the WS-Policy4MASC Language and MiniZnMASC Middleware

The WS-Policy4MASC language and MiniZnMASC middleware for policy-driven management of service-oriented systems enable making IT system management decisions that maximize diverse business value metrics (e.g., profit, customer satisfaction). However, their past support for alignment with high-level business considerations was weak. Therefore, the authors introduce a new extension of WS-Policy4MASC that specifies the key concepts from the Business Motivation Model (BMM) industrial standard for modeling business intent. These concepts include hierarchies of ends (e.g., goals) and means (e.g., strategies).
