With the economy moving towards a service centric model, the potential impact of SeCSE will be across the entire chain of software services, with the primary focus on organizations that use both internal and external software services. The SeCSE project will empower European citizens and organisations to take a leadership role in exploiting the potential of software services. The potential impact from SeCSE include:
- energizing the software and service industry - Software and service companies will be able to propose a portfolio of services to individual users and businesses (payment services, digital library services, etc.) and draw on new revenue streams.
- give European service operators a lead in future software and service market - By leading the design and standardization of enterprise capable services, industry in Europe will be in a unique position to create and expose services for large enterprises.
- encouraging business innovation - New business models will be made easier to articulate and assess. Service consumers will be able to transform imprecise user requirements into service specifications.
- empowering consumers - Consumers will be able to choose the right service offering at the right time.
By leveraging research results in technologies (from static to dynamic to adaptive binding integration), methods (service-centric system engineering, context-specific services specifications, contract management) and tools (from imprecise end-user requirements to service-based system specifications), SeCSE aims to specifically impact and innovate the following areas of software engineering.
