Abstract

As automation is a key driver to achieve efficiency in the ever growing IT landscape, many different deployment automation technologies arose. These technologies to deploy and manage applications have been widely adopted in industry and research. In larger organizations, usually even multiple deployment technologies are used in parallel. However, as most of these technologies offer limited or no management capabilities, managing application systems deployed using different deployment technologies is cumbersome. Thus, holistic management functionalities affecting multiple components of an application, e. g., update or back up all components, is impossible. In this paper, we present an approach that enables the automated execution of holistic management functionalities for running applications. To achieve this, we first retrieve instance information of a running application and derive a standardized instance model of the application. Afterwards, the instance model is enriched with additional management functionality. We hereby extend the existing Management Feature Enrichment and Workflow Generation approach to support running applications. To execute the enriched management functionalities on the running application, standard-based workflows are generated.
