S-CASE – Scaffolding scalable software services
Focus: Providing cloud services and tools for software developers to enable rapid software prototyping based on user requirements and system models in multimodal formats. Software developers will be equipped with a set of software artefacts that implement various aspects of the application being developed. S-CASE will introduce new business models for service providers and software SMEs willing to provide integrated end-customer solutions, minimising development costs and effort.

Partnership: Hellas (Centre for Research & Technology), Greece; University of Edinburgh, UK; Insubria University, Italy; Flexiant Ltd, UK; Akquinet tech@spree, Germany; Ericsson Nikola Tesla d.d., Coatia; DELPHIS – D. Daskalopoulos S.A., Greece; Engineering, Italy
Use cases: The S-CASE approach will be verified and validated by deploying three diverse pilot case applications: 1) a cloud-based implementation of a sensor fusion scenario. 2) A mechanism for the interoperability of cloud applications in cloud infrastructures. 3) A mechanism for creating mash-up applications via various content provider feeds, for personalised group - oriented information services.
Impact: Accelerating the development and deployment of cloud computing, increase Europe's ability to design and deliver innovative services with strong user engagement through better involvement of SMEs and individual researchers/developers, and strengthen the European software industry with the know-how to build complex services and big data management in a multi-layered cloud computing continuum.
