Client-oriented Architecture for e-Business

Jose Neto, Celso Hirata


In general e-Business solutions focuses in the service provider, they do not consider companies or large client interest. The current web service business models do not allow consumers either to request for unavailable services nor allow to request their services needs met by a complex arrangement of providers. In this paper we propose a novel approach for making service compositions based on customer demand to meet business needs in an agile way. The business needs are related to the flexibility of the client to express its needs. The agility is related to the capability of the supplier to implement services in timely manner. To achieve the goal, we use as support the business forms and the e-Contract lifecycle methodology to discipline and facilitate the provider and client responsibilities.
