Mobile Patterns as a Service – Modular Construction System for Software
In the research projekt Mobile Patterns as a Service the m²c-lab developed a generic modular construction system for mobile business software. As a basis for the evaluation a solution for the (mobile) technical service is used. The generic modular arrays are defined in patterns. In software techniques, they are used as templates or best practices to solve reoccuring problems in a defined context. Topic of the project is the whole cycle of software development that shall be covered with adequate mobile patterns.
It is a longterm goal to be able to develop software for SMEs (small and medium enterprises) with a fixed assessment of costs. This shall be made possible by applying the developed patterns with suitable tools. On the other hand, there is research on accounting mechanisms, such as the rentable software model "Software as a Service" which is also described as a pattern.
