The research on the economic impact of the current inadequacy of SOA testing tools and infrastructures and the evaluation of the testing needs of the existing business cooperating architectures allows the MIDAS project to:

  • estimate the improvement in terms of quality and cost of the availability of testing automation and intelligence methods, tools and infrastructures;
  • define new business models for SOA testing facilities provisioning through new channels such as elastic PaaS and for testable services and services architecture delivery.

The potential impact of the upcoming MIDAS achievements involves the delivery and deployment of dependable, secure and testable services and services architectures. In particular, the MIDAS framework and platform:

  • guarantees the general availability of powerful, flexible, scalable and cheap SOA testing automation and intelligence;
  • allows the delivery and deployment of services architectures with integrated advanced testing facilities.
