English abstract:
We present a lightweight coordination and collaboration platform,
intertwining contemporary social networking platforms
and SOA principles. The idea of our approach is to use Twitter
as a platform for collaborations of human and software
services in the context of workflows. We introduce primitives
that provide SOA functionality like service discovery
or service binding and illustrate how these primitives are
embedded in Tweets. By using Tweets, we are able to reuse
existing infrastructures and tools (e.g., twitter clients on mobile
devices) for the communication between services and humans.
Simultaneously, we exploit social network structures
originating from Twitter follower networks in order to discover
(human and software) resources that are required for
the execution of a workflow. Finally, we are able to monitor
the execution of workflows with Twitter, simply by following
Tweets that represent the execution of a workflow.
