Green Services Engineering, Optimization, and Modeling in the Technological Age

Book Description

Concerns surrounding environmental sustainability have led to an increase of interest in environmentally-friendly systems. In the ICT realm, attention has been largely paid to green aspects of hardware; however, it is equally necessary to address this issue from the software perspective. Green Services Engineering, Optimization, and Modeling in the Technological Age is a valuable reference source of the latest scholarly research on the implementation of green processes into software systems, contributing novel principles, methodologies, and tools to improve software development. Featuring comprehensive and timely coverage on various areas in service strategy and modeling, engineering, and sustainability, this publication is a pivotal reference source for researchers, practitioners, advanced-level students, and end users in the software development realm.
