The idea of more flexible, modular system structures thanks to web service interfaces feed expectations towards a novel degree of business agility. However, the challenge of the information system community consists in developing methods and techniques to vest service orientation with business concepts that deploy a SOA according to organisational requirements. This paper takles this challenge by introducing Business Service Management as an interdisciplinary discipline for businee- driven deployment of SOA. It approaches this ambitious objective by utilizing business processes as semi- formalized representations of an enterprise`s characteristics and requirements towards IT.
