In the current era of state-of-the-art cutting edge technologies, businesses and organisations are rushing to transform their trade into e-business. The opportunity to utilise e-business improves their chances of gaining a larger market share by maximizing product availability, reducing the day-to -day business activity processing time, and providing related services in a convenient and inexpensive way to their customers. However in this race, the e-business growth pendulum is only swinging one way, and it is easy to understand the reason for this by observing today's business market. Due to the current financial condition, small business organizations (e.g. local retail shops) cannot afford costly IT systems and the associated maintenance/administration costs, but despite these financial constraints they have an overriding need for computing facilities in order to survive and compete with larger competitors by expanding their businesses. In this research, Web 2.0 and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) technology are used to provide a middleware collaboration model between data persistence logic and an operation's requests. This layer helps to overcome the hard-coded service mapping with interface and generic customized workflow problems. This research further provides a mediation platform for request brokers and a high level of abstraction by encapsulating the low level details of the system. These are the most vital requirements to provide a platform, which have the capability of customizing business logic and handle both generic and customized workflows and subsequently to help SMEs (Small- to Medium-sized Enterprises) to convert their businesses to e-business swiftly at minimal cost.
