ssai logo The Internet of Services is a vision of the Internet of the Future where everything that is needed to use software applications is available as a service on the Internet, such as the software itself, the tools to develop the software, the platform (servers, storage and communication) to run the software. Cloud computing ( visit our website! ) is a relatively new model of Internet-based computing, whereby servers, storage, networking, software, and information are provided on demand.
Anybody who wants to develop applications can use the resources in the Internet of Services to develop them. Advantages of the “Internet of Services” include the little investments needed upfront to develop an application and the possibility to build upon other people’s efforts. The risk involved in pursuing new business ideas is diminished, and might lead to more innovative ideas being tried out in practice.
