The growing demand of business–driven IT systems as well as the good welcome Software as a Service has received (Saas) has led to the creation of a special kind of SaaS known as Process as a Service (PRaaS). In it, the provider gives everything a business process needs in its lifecycle: modelling, usage, customisation and execution just like any other service. In PRaaS, service users can access some predefined processes, customise them according to their needs and run them all from the cloud. All of this is regulated by Service Level Agreements.

The global aim of TAPAS is to tackle some of the challenges that arise from the development and exploitation of this new kind of services and in particular of the challenges related to the higher level specifications which are harder to find in current solutions: high configurability, advanced analysis, automated auditing and governing regulated by Service Level Agreements (SLA). As an additional aim, the goal is to certify the right working order of some of the solutions developed through automatically generated test cases.
