Impact

The main outcome of the HEADS project will be an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) supporting a domain specific modeling language and an operational methodology for specification, validation, deployment and evolution of software-intensive services distributed across the future computing continuum. The HEADS IDE will allow modeling the behavior of a service in a homogeneous HEADS modeling language while allowing the implementation of the service to be distributed over heterogeneous networks and devices. The HEADS IDE will be developed and released as open-source and extensible by a plugin mechanism and a framework to add support for additional platforms.

HEADS will make HD-Service development affordable and accessible to a wide range of industry domains. The project especially targets SMEs which typically do not have in-house knowledge of all the target platforms they would like to exploit within the future computing continuum. It also targets sectors for which a rapid innovation and release cycle is the key. Moreover, the emergence of the future computing continuum will impact end user requirements and transform business markets, this again require companies to evolve existing products and services to fully exploit this continuum. A main impact of HEADS will be through provision of exploitable results to perform these tasks in an efficient and cost effective way.
