Service Computing 0 Services computing is a computer discipline which bridges the traditional information technology (IT) systems and business services. 0 Provides businesses with custom solutions to complex business needs, such as web services, Service Oriented Architecture, mash-ups, Software as a Service, and Cloud Computing. 0 The primary goal of service computing is to ensure that a business's needs are met in a timely and efficient fashion 0 5 10 15 20 25 Sales of SaaS packages ($billion)
  2. 2. Global Impact 0 Service computing has broken the geographical limits imposed on traditional businesses 0 Audiences and user bases are global, allowing access to previously untapped niche markets 0 Competition is also global, requiring the businesses learn to adapt to trends both locally and globally to remain relevant 0 Hardware may be located anywhere in the globe, providing convenience, lowering costs and allowing businesses to utilise different laws advantageously.
  3. 3. Local Impact 0 Increased access to data allows businesses to observe trends on a local level and respond accordingly 0 Local governments providing service computing solutions to community-specific needs, such as in public transport or health 0 Connecting with members of a community may be facilitated with service computing, for both professional and private means

Personal Impact 0 End users may customise their software usage according to their needs, vis-à-vis feature sets and pay-as-you-go software models 0 Strongly tied to the introduction of smart devices – users are nearly as powerful while mobile as when at a desk 0 Empowers users by allowing instantaneous access to any form of media or service
  5. 5. Google Maps • The Leading navigation service for availability and usage. • Is already used by location based software for Android and Apple devices. • Can be used for both tracking a GPS enabled Device headed to the users location and Navigating to a location using GPS to pinpoint the users location and give directions. • Available worldwide for free. • API (application programming interface) available for maximum compatibility. • Has Traffic density, weather, terrain, and pictures that people have Geotagged.

  10. 10. Business Process Model
  11. 11. The Problem 0 With the advent of the internet, location became irrelevant – users can connect to any user globally, shop from any location 0 The popularity of GPS-compatible smart devices has increased the relevancy of location-based data, but this has yet to be fully exploited 0 So much media is created every moment that it is nigh-impossible to discern what one user will find relevant, useful or entertaining 0 People may walk through a city, looking only at a screen in their hand. There needs to be an application that combines the digital realm with the physical in an intimate setting.

  14. 14. How? 0 This integrates the best of Social Media into one Global online you, allowing you to share inspirational stories when and where they happened and people can view them in your place 0 This is done by recording a video/ take a picture, and then using the app, Geotag your location and Drop it and anyone you link can come to that location and pick it up and hold their device out in front of them completing the view with your video/picture to truly recreate the moment 0 Not only that but you can leave behind status updates or tweets to tell people about events or even review a restaurant.

User Interactions 0 Designed to seamlessly integrate with users' lives, adding value and convenience in both accessing and producing content 0 Utilising intuitive design to reduce many interfaces (YouTube, Facebook, etc) to one. 0 Technical interactions as hidden from the user as possible - emphasis on content. 0 Design affordances utilise existing interfaces to provide context - clickable buttons are obviously clickable, etc.

  18. 18.
