Service-oriented architectures are the upcoming business standard for realizing enterprise information systems, thus creating a need for analysis and design methods that are truly service-oriented. Most research on this topic so far takes a strict software engineering perspective. For a proper alignment between the business and the IT, a service perspective at the business level is needed as well. Using an MDA approach, this paper introduces a new business service and resource modeling language-BSRM, based on the REA business ontology. Coordination services are identified as boundary objects between the conceptual and operational level. A meta-modeling approach is used to map the service modeling language with complimentary models, in particular value network e3value, data model ER and process models BPMN.
