Abstract: In this paper, we propose an approach to model KIBS firm activities as digital ecosystem of services in a distributed environment supported ICT. In particular, we present a generic service system architecture with respect to “Everything as a Service” (*aaS) architecture to provide digital services in pervasive environment. To achieve interoperability, we introduce a service-based middleware relying on service characteristics and service lifecycles. The middleware enables operational and management features to achieve secure, proactive, and context-aware e-services. An important aspect of our approach is the ontological description of various components and the management of business activities with business rules.

Keywords: service systems; business services; knowledge-intensive firms; ontology; SWRL rules; digital ecosystems; ICT; distributed computing; pervasive computing; interoperability; secure e-services; proactive e-services; context-aware e-services; security; electronic services.
