Overview

SOA End-to-End Resource Planning is a technology that optimizes deployment of services onto a SOA description of an application. The focus in EERP is on the characterization of the business characteristics of a service (called Business Quality of Service in the references listed under External Resources below), characterization and accessing the reputation of potential service providers, and Business Service-Level Agreements. See the EERP white paper approved by the committee for details and future direction.
