Many organisations are considering moving their business processes to the cloud to save money by also taking advantage of its infinite and affordable resources. However, this migration requires aligning the business and cloud levels as well as adaptively managing the business processes in the cloud. CloudSocket is a project dealing with these issues, which facilitates the transformation of business processes into business process as a service (BPaaS) products offered by organisations playing the role of a broker. A respective platform has been produced which enables the management of the whole lifecycle of a BPaaS.
