Since its establishment as a software design style, service-oriented architecture (SOA) has taken the information and communications technology (ICT) world by storm. The keyword for this success is adaptivity: SOAs are implemented through a wide range of technologies and tools leading to numerous combinations that meet the application requirements in the desired way.
With the emergence of Industry 4.0, the development of SOAs has to deal with a specific combination of application characteristics and requirements, e.g. data-intensive tasks coupled with temporal requirements. Big Data and IoT applications are simply two general application categories that come with exactly those characteristics. The challenge is justified because SOA is simply not intended for these kinds of applications.
This special issue encourages submissions dealing with scientific challenges and solutions to potential new systems arising from the need to handle Industry 4.0 application tasks (i.e. related to IoT, Data Science, Cyber Security, etc.) with a SOA framework.
The objective of this special issue is to capture the latest advances in research topcis that include but are not limited to:
