Currently, context awareness has become essential in software applications and services, being highly demanded by users, specially for mobile computing applications. This need for providing context awareness requires a software infrastructure, not only in order to receive context information but also to make use of it so that it provides advantageous services which may be customized according to user needs. In this paper, we provide an Event-Driven Service Oriented Architecture, supported by an Enterprise Service Bus, which will facilitate the incorporation of Internet of Things data and will provide real-time context-aware services. The result is a scalable context-aware architecture which can be applied in a wide spectrum of domains, which has been validated through a real-world case study.
