Common Understanding Wiki
A Common Knowledge Source of Terms and Definitions
CloudSocket Technology and Terminology Wiki
This wiki is intended to create a common technical understanding of Business Process as a Service and CloudSocket in particular. It's main purpose is to collect, describe and explain the used concepts not only for the consortium members but also for other cooperative projects. In particular, it functions as a references to the project terminology that is used in all project documents such as deliverables, but also the website and marketing material. There exist two navigation paths through this wiki. The first one takes Terminology, Tools, Technologies, and Users/Roles as a first level separator. The second path follows a taxonomy that captures the technological background of the project ranging from Business Process Management (BPM) to cloud systems, but also incorporates new terms coined by the project.
For quick access to individual terms use the Glossary page.
The references page lists all references that were used to emerge this wiki.
