26/04/2007BIS'07 Poznan, Poland 5 QoS-driven service selection Problems in quality-driven service selection: Lack of QoS statistics Volatility of QoS factors Multidimensionality Subjectivity Context-dependence Approaches Multi-attribute optimization [Ardagna and Pernici 2005, Zeng et al. 2004, Yu et al ] Constraints satisfaction [Martin-Diaz et al. 2005] Genetic algorithms [Canfora et al. 2006] Fuzzy [Lin et al. 2005] Problems with existing approaches Simplified models (e.g., one service for one task) Dependences among QoS factors are ignored Context is not taken into account

26/04/2007BIS'07 Poznan, Poland 9 Risk-driven service selection Loss function – defines the cost of service failure (money, time, resources) Choose the composition that maximizes the expected profit:
26/04/2007BIS'07 Poznan, Poland 10 Failure risk probability that some fault occurs resulting impact of this fault on the composite service where is the probability of the service failure. Loss function includes: Expenses to invoke failed service (its cost and response time) Service failure can cause rollback of the transaction, therefore expenses to execute precedent services are also included The provider may have to pay penalty to a user whose request was not accomplished.

26/04/2007BIS'07 Poznan, Poland 14 Experimental results (1) Goal: Compare QoS of compositions chosen by our algorithm with QoS of compositions chosen by other methods Zeng et al.  QoS factors: price, duration, reputation, success rate, availability Objective function: linear combination of scaled QoS factors Scaling: QoS factors range from 0 to 1 Weights reflect user preferences

26/04/2007BIS'07 Poznan, Poland 16 Conclusions and Future work A novel risk-based method for assessing QoS of web services is proposed Real world case studies Comparative analysis of existing service selection algorithms Risk management framework for automatic web service compositions Questions?
