The service engine has long been used by the financial services industry as a critical component of financial engineering and analytics.
It provides a platform to automate the execution of financial analysis and execution plans.
But it has also become a bottleneck in many modern cloud-based services.
The service-engine has long supported a “service model” where data and applications are distributed across multiple services and services have a set of services that provide data for them to execute.
Service-engine vendors, such as Google and Microsoft, have been building service-engines that scale across multiple service providers.
And the industry has been experimenting with the idea of building a service-model where all services have access to data and compute resources, which allows a single service to scale to multiple services.
One solution that has emerged recently is to combine the traditional service model with a service model where all service providers can share services, and thus all services can serve all customers.
“We’re starting to see that the service-level agreement is starting to become a very attractive solution,” says David A. Johnson, vice president of research at cloud computing giant VMware.
“It’s a very flexible approach.”
One solution, he says, is to use a service layer that gives service providers the ability to share data between service providers and a “network layer” that provides a common interface between service and application.
“That network layer will provide the infrastructure for service-embalancing, which means the service can scale out and scale back to a point where it doesn’t have to consume all the compute resources from the application.”
For the service, the service layer will also provide a common API that will allow service providers to leverage the shared services.
“You can use the same service for a variety of services, but they will all be served by the same network layer,” Johnson says.
In addition to the service model, the industry is also experimenting with a hybrid service- and service-layer.
“The services that we build are really all in the service engine,” Johnson explains.
“And if the service provider has a service that’s not really a service, then that’s kind of a service.
But if it’s really a cloud service, it’s kind
