The Twelfth International Conference on Internet and Web Applications and Services

Internet based applications have revolutionized our communication, social interaction, improved lifestyle,

smart cities, and efficient businesses, etc. At the same time, we have also seen the large number of downfalls

due to software failures. All research has shown this was mainly due to lack of adopting established software

engineering practices. Now, the emergence of service and cloud computing has taken us all by surprise and its

capabilities that offers will revolutionize to the next generation of applications along with the emergence of bid

data analytics and IoT (Internet of Things), IoE (Internet of Everything), etc. To sustain the next generation of

cloud based applications, we need to make sure we adopt a systematic software engineering approach to

developing secure cloud and web services. This conference opens a new approaches, processes, techniques, and

technologies to apply across the new notion and a paradigm of Cloud and Web Software Engineering.

Service oriented software engineering and cloud software engineering have emerged to address software as

a set of services which deal with user needs. Therefore a service may make call requests to a range of systems

(integrated software applications) and hence the emphasis is on design flexibility. Earlier chapter considered a

set of guidelines on when to choose objects, components, and web services. We need to understand the concept

behind services and components before making our design choice. The main emphasis for choosing various

design rationale is to manage change and flexibility in software design and to meet user requests for a range of

random services. The issues of managing change support two perspectives such as business and technical.

There are many ways to define and implement services. Traditionally a service is invoked by direct human

users which may not be the best definition with respect to current service-oriented paradigm which has emerged

in recent years. In practice, services may provide capability for immediate use based on well defined behaviour,

inputs, and outputs. Services should be managed to meet quality and other non-functional objectives. Services

are organised to meet overall organisational goals such as business, customer satisfaction, social, employee

training needs, and financial. Characteristics of services are customisable on the fly, and composable (services

made up of services) thus creating Systems of Systems (SoS). In addition these are similar characteristics of

open distributed and telecom frameworks. Service oriented computing allows to move from unmeasured to

measured economy by means of measuring service invocation, input versus output (GDP), employer sector, and

employee activities.

Service and cloud computing involves several relationships amongst at least three major subject areas such

as human activity (including study of psychology, knowledge sharing, requirements engineering, social

sciences, understanding people and culture, ethnography), organisational and business processes (detailed study

of management science, organisational structures, external and customer relationship management system), and

web and computational services (detailed analysis of web enabled services, computational aspects, design

attributes such as run-time re-configurability, integration, testing, componentisation).

Requirements Engineering for Service and Cloud Computing

cooperation, collaboration and communications, and Unified
