Outsourcing has been one of the most controversially discussed topics in the infor mation systems (IS) management field within the last decade. While some organi zations have been quick to adopt outsourcing, others have been slow to consider this sourcing option. Still others have evaluated outsourc ing but adopted insourcing in stead. In other words, organizations appear to behave totally different in the sourc ing of their IS tasks. There are no generall y accepted practices, e.g., outsourcing certain types ofIS services while keeping others in-house. The sourcing decision ap pears to be highly dependent on the specific situation of each organization. Recognizing the unique context of each organization, this book presents an empiri cally tested model that can be used to analyze the options of IS insourcing versus outsourcing of every organization. The model takes into account the unique IS re quirements and the differences between insourcing and outsourcing at both the in dividual (i.e., worker) and the organizational level.
Researchers and professionals will find in this text the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the Third International Conference on the Quality of Software Architectures, QoSA 2007, held in Medford, MA, USA, in 2007. It was mounted in conjunction with the 10th International ACM SIGSOFT Symposium on Component-Based Software Engineering, CBSE 2007. The 13 revised full papers presented together with one keynote lecture were carefully reviewed and selected from 42 submissions.

During the IFAC/IFIP I-ESA international conference, supported bythe INTEROP NoE and the ATHENA IP, three workshops and a doctoralsymposium were organized in order to strengthen some key topicsrelated to interoperability for enterprise applications andsoftware. The workshops were selected to complement the conference topics,providing researchers with more time to brainstorm and then to comeout, at the end of the workshops, with new research directions forthe future.
