This talk will discuss the state of the art in service-oriented computing and how it has manifested itself into web-scale, system workflows for various cyber-physical domains. After a background into the state-of-the-art in software-as-a-service systems, I will highlight three specific projects conducted in my research lab - approaches for spanning scientific workflows across cloud environments, approaches for energy-efficient service-oriented systems across geographically distributed networks, and infrastructures that leverage mixed human and web service systems to conduct big data analytics.
