Abstract:


This paper introduces a framework and a service model improving the understanding of domain requirements acquisition for IT-service systems development. The service model fills the gap in domain specific requirements elicitation through its base in the classical rhetorical frame introduced by Hermagoras of Temnos and through the interpretation of the domain in terms of service offerings. The model is validated by a real-life situation – to establish an ophthalmologic Disease Diagnosis Decision Support Network (DDDSN) for age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) treatments.
