Abstract : Increasing the productivity of the Service-Oriented Software Engineering through a model-driven methodology needs to go beyond business services modeling and the automation of transforming models that adhere to the SOA style. Commonly, the business analysts focus on modeling business processes. Then, IT developers implement software architectures that are automatically generated from the process models. In this paper we look forward to maintaining the alignment between business services and their supporting IT assets when business settings evolve. We introduce an approach for an incremental synchronization between business process models and component configuration models that follow SOA architectural principles.We automate the change forward propagation by enforcing in-place translations of the updates on the models in order to preserve their consistency. Rather than executing the entire development process again, software architects can assess the necessity of propagating design decisions to the implementation level by adapting the deployed IT assets according to the business evolutions.
