The Panel on Extra-functional Contracts Versus Service Level Agreements

Wednesday, 15.10.2008, 17:30 - 19:00

Organized by
Dr. Wolfgang Theilmann, SAP AG, Germany
Mircea Trifu, FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik, Germany

Short Summay
The purpose of this panel is to bring together experts from the CBSE, SOA and GRID communities and to start a dialog about QoS, a topic common to all of these fields. Dependable QoS characteristics are of fundamental importance in order to further drive the economy in general and the industrialization of the IT sector in particular. In order to get a comprehensive view on QoS topics different disciplines have to synchronized, most important the disciplines of software engineering, service computing and Grid-like infrastructures. The possibility to model, predict, measure, guarantee and monitor certain QoS levels for critical services or components is not only a desirable feature but a necessity for all of these fields. This is anything but trivial, because QoS depends on so many factors: infrastructure including middleware and virtualization layers, the entire software stack including external components / services and usage profile. Because these communities focus on limited sets of specific issues, they have their own limited views on QoS. In order to realize the vision of end-to-end QoS, these views have to be reconciled into a comprehensive QoS model spanning several axes and covering design-time and run-time concerns, low-level (infrastructure), medium-level (software) and high-level (business) aspects, component / service aggregation and decomposition, different stakeholder perspectives, etc.
