This aim of this deliverable is to establish a first relationship between the S-Cube project and industry
partners, which currently use SOA and which are willing to provide best practices and case studies for
validating the S-Cube research results. This industry alignment was achieved in three steps: First, we
collected a list of possible industrial contributors. Second, we asked each contributor to complete a
questionnaire. This questionnaire was used not only to find out whether a particular company is willing
to contribute to S-Cube but also to gather information about the current status of industrial SOA projects
and their main problems to which S-Cube may contribute. Third, on the basis of the results of these
questionnaires we propose seven potential industrial partners with which we want to collaborate.
