Inspired by the biological perspective of service ecosystems, we propose to define the fitness of services in service networks. In our work, we show how to calculate the service fitness from the provider perspective using locally available information as a reflection of the position of the service in the service network. For that purpose we define a fitness corridor with upper and lower bounds that confine the service fitness area. After establishing a fitness corridor, we show how to calibrate the fitness calculation parameters to better reflect the service market and how to use the calculated fitness trends for making decisions about the provisioning of a service.
