Abstract: Managing traffic becomes more and more dependent on ICT – Information and Communication Technology, in general and particularly on ICT services support. Safety, pollution, congestion, and travel time are all important concerns that point to needs for improving traffic management and realizing this would concern the supportive services (including ICT services). Technology-independent functionality models are not only needed for better understanding the (used and/or desired) (IT) services and discussing them of full value with both developers and users but also for establishing appropriate traceability that would allow updating the underlying technology accordingly based on desired updates in the service support. That is why business models and service applications need to be considered together. Hence, in addressing service applications for traffic management, we would emphasize on the crucial role of business process analysis and technology-independent modeling. Further, service appl ications relate to corresponding ICT-based service platforms that provide relevant support – in the case of traffic management, it would be for example: localized monitoring and management of traffic and environmental information collected from various information sources such as sensors, surveillance cameras, and weather stations. Such information should be made available through the services in order to increase reusability, loose coupling and management of different information and their analysis. With regard to this, two significant challenges relate to service discovery and interoperability. This paper, reporting research in progress, emphasizes not only on service applications (particularly for traffic) and relations to business modeling, but also on the challenges mentioned above. In this way, we present some visions on how to better benefit from business models and IT services, for usefully improving traffic management, partially exemplifying this. (More)
