What is CloudSocket?

Translates and wraps business processes into specific technical solutions (BPaaS) available in the cloud

The overall idea: CloudSocket covers the discovery, orchestration, deployment and execution of BP services on the cloud. It represents a learning cycle which improves cloud individualization over time. With CloudSocket, the level of integration is lifted from the technical to the business level.

CloudSocket value chain - what we actually do:
  • Design: map business needs to business processes out of which abstract workflows are built, while enables the specification of KPIs and high-level deployment rules that can guide the deployment and execution of the business process in the cloud.
  • Allocation: select all services needed for the BPaaS workflow realisation and deployment and wrap everything, (including an SLA templates), in the form of a BPaaS bundle.
  • Marketplace: publish the BPaaS in a marketplace so that it can be browsed, assessed and hopefully bought by potential SME customers. Additional features of the Marketplace allow you to mannage your portfolio and customer lists.
  • Execution: supports the deployment and execution of the purchased BPaaS bundle in the cloud.
  • Evaluation: enables you to get insight about the purchased BPaaS performance and identify potentials for further BPaaS improvement to further reduce costs and increase your gains.

How do we do this?

Why should you become a BPaaS Broker?

How can you benefit from being a BPaaS Broker, within our value chain?

The Cloud Service Brokerage platform offers customers and their end users a service marketplace from which to select and provision BPaaS, SaaS and IaaS services. Behind the scenes, there is a middleware orchestrating the execution of services by also enabling their adaptation at the different possible levels (business, service and infrastructure). Such a middleware follows a Service Oriented Architecture and relies on REST APIs to expose the platform services offered to the front end, on a Process Engine to orchestrate the execution of BPaaS services and on a lightweight Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) to integrate third-party services.

Cloud service solutions are highly individualized and their behaviour may vary in unexpected ways, increasing the complexity of integration or composition, hence an adaptation framework is introduced. The CloudSocket framework will cover the entire lifecycle of brokering service products, from provisioning of tenants, users and applications/services, going through management of such entities and enriching these with product specific effects and operations abstracted in a generic way, all the while providing information about monitoring and metering events useful for the evaluation of KPIs and SLOs.

CloudSocket Tools

The tools section contains software prototypes and tools that are useful not only when implementing a CloudSocket Broker but also span across the lifespan of a Business Process (BP) and integrate seamlessly in a BP's lifecycle (execution, design, allocation & evaluation activity).
