S4ALL 2004-2007

Services For All

Monday 31 December 2007

Different factors have been contributing to the well known (and ever growing) success of the Internet. It is quite easy to write own “pages“ as many easy-to-use editing graphical tools exist todays. Even more easy is the deployment of these pages on the global “World Wide Web“ as many alternatives are offered to you, ranging from uploading them to an ISP to the home made hosting using open source tools as Apache. The WWW at the same time plays more and more the role of a front end to business specific processes – a.k.a. E-services – as it is quite easy to connect to an ISP and go to a dedicated web page giving access to train reservation, energy consumption, etc... Such services are also invokable by other business processes using the “web-service“ paradigm. We want this same success story to happen again with mobile services as the ultimate mean to ease inter-person communication, to facilitate the everyday life and to create, share and access services, content with the whole community. Indeed, one way to boost the service market in Europe consists of: providing Open Source based application supporting infrastructure that can be used by all on the PC at home, on the mobile phone on the move or at the big actor side (Telco, ISP, manufacturers); pushing the creation power to any one’s hand providing then any one with either new business opportunity or the capability to share services with the community and to extend his/her communication sphere; decreasing time to market for professional actors (service providers, industries) by providing easy-to-use creation tools and development environment and fast service deployment.

Objectives

These are the goal of the S4ALL project that can be simply summarised as follows:
- providing Open Source based application supporting infrastructure that can be used by all on the PC at home, on the mobile phone on the move or at the big actor side (Telco, ISP, manufacturers);
- pushing the creation power to any one’s hand providing then any one with either new business opportunity or the capability to share services with the community and to extend his/her communication sphere;
- decreasing time to market for professional actors (service providers, industries) by providing easy-to-use creation tools and development environment and fast service deployment.
