Abstract. The last decade was a time of a very successful growth of Electronic Markets (EMs). EM is an electronically-supported system which is rather focused on selling physical goods. Electronic Service Market (ESM) is a special case of EM, focused on selling services. The raising business of running ESM seems to be the next possible evolution of the classic EM, and in last few years, several ESM projects were started by various organizations. This paper presents the essential Functional and Architectural Requirements needed in ESM system. The way of their transformation into the architecture of real-life application based on STCMBER meta-architecture was presented. The proposed architecture was validated in the series of pilot implementations performed in compliance with Consortium Research method.
