Nowadays, there is a lack of smart marine monitoring systems, which have possibilities to integrate multi-dimensional components for monitoring and predicting marine water quality and making decisions for their optimal operations with minimal human intervention. This research aims to extend the smart coastal marine monitoring by proposing a solar energy planning and control component. The proposed approach involves the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) for the wireless buoys, working online during the whole year in the Baltic Sea near the Lithuanian coast. The usage of our proposed fuzzy solar energy planning and control components allows us to prolong the lifespan of batteries in buoys, so it has a positive impact on sustainable development. The novelty and advantage of the proposed approach lie in establishing the ANFIS-based model to predict and control solar energy in a buoy for different lighting and temperature conditions depending on the four year seasons and to make a decision to transfer the collected data. The energy planning and consumption system for the wireless sensor network of buoys is carefully evaluated, and its prototype is developed. The proposed approach can be practically used for environmental monitoring, providing stakeholders with relevant and timely information for sound decision-making about hydro-meteorological situations in coastal marine water.

The data-driven approach is popular to automate learning of fuzzy rules and tuning membership function parameters in fuzzy inference systems (FIS) development. However, researchers highlight different challenges and issues of this FIS development because of its complexity. This paper evaluates the current state of the art of FIS development complexity issues in Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Systems, specifically: 1) What complexity issues exist in the context of developing FIS? 2) Is it possible to systematize existing solutions of identified complexity issues? We have conducted a hybrid systematic literature review combined with a systematic mapping study that includes keyword map to address these questions. This review has identified the main FIS development complexity issues that practitioners should consider when developing FIS. The paper also proposes a framework of complexity issues and their possible solutions in FIS development.

The symbiosis between an enterprise architecture and service-oriented architecture results in so-called service-oriented enterprise architecture and brings up new problems for service-oriented enterprise systems engineering. One of the most important is a business service quality definition, specification and evaluation. The paper proposes a formal model of enterprise business service quality evaluation framework to encompass and balance all the viewpoints and perspectives on an enterprise business service quality.
