Management of Virtual Organizations

Conference paper


In the Virtual Organization (VO) Management area the main challenge has been to develop policies and models for governance and lifecycle management of a business-to-business (B2B) collaboration. This work included research and development in the areas of federated identity management and semantics in addition to VO, business registries and B2B collaboration managements. The main results produced in the VO Management area include capabilities, patterns and software solutions to simplify governance and lifecycle management of B2B collaborations (VOs), and to manage applications distributed over several federated network hosts (e.g. Cloud Computing platforms).
