Adaptive Process in a Pervasive System - A Holistic Hybrid Approach

Henry Chika Eleonu and Jane Oruh

Currently few efficient context aware systems that dynamically adapt business processes to context information exist. This calls for the study of context data that affect business processes at runtime, and also a research on adaptive systems that will dynamically reconfigure a business process at runtime to soot the current context. Context-aware systems offer entirely new opportunities for application developers and for end users by gathering context data and adapting systems behavior accordingly, especially in combination with mobile devices these mechanisms are of high value and are used to increase usability tremendously. Our goal is to develop efficient architectural frameworks for context aware systems for business processes that will respond to changing context by adapting itself to a new context. We propose a hybrid architecture which combines both middleware technologies and web services.

Keywords: Process Adaptive, Context Aware Systems, Pervasive Systems, Ubiquitous Systems, Context Aware Business Processes, Software Architecture, context modeling.
