The research project COCKTAIL is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and has a 3 years duration. Its primary goal is to define and prototypically implement a platform for software services, which can be offered as mashups or SaaS solutions. This platform will support a rich variety of business models, making the offered solutions highly attractive for small and medium-sized companies. Key platform features include scalability, flexible composition of services, and prediction of service quality to determine feasible service level agreements (SLA). Generic concepts for monitoring, accounting and billing complement the picture.
The envisioned COCKTAIL platform will be a major step towards the standardisation of business-enabled mashup and SaaS solutions.
