Interactions spanning multiple organizations have become
an important aspect in today's collaboration landscape.
Organizations create alliances to fulfill strategic
objectives. The dynamic nature of collaborations
increasingly demands for automated techniques and
algorithms to support the creation of such alliances. Our
approach bases on the recommendation of potential alliances
by discovery of currently relevant competence sources and
the support of semi-automatic formation. The environment is
service-oriented comprising humans and software services
with distinct capabilities. To mediate between previously
separated groups and organizations, we introduce the broker
concept that bridges disconnected networks. We present a
dynamic broker discovery approach based on interaction
mining techniques and trust metrics. We evaluate our
approach by using simulations in real Web services'
