The seekda OG is a spin-of of the Digital Enterprise Research Institute at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. Seekda is developing the first Web Service Search Engine based on focused crawling, allowing access to publicly available Web Services. The affiliated seekda Web Service Marketplace will allow to trade services usage rights in a one-stop-shopping manner across different providers.
Seekda simplifies purchases across different providers and unifies the usage of services in bundles. The current Web Service market is very intransparent and centred around atomic service offering. Seekda addresses the need of solutions for real world business problems comprised of multiple services, by allowing the creation of service bundles. Interoperability issues between different providers are handled by the marketplace, which allows seamless exchange of providers and reduces integration costs for our customers.
