The emerging cloud computing models for Internet-of-Things have fostered the development of lightweight applications using cloud services for monitoring and optimizing devices and equipment hosted in distributed facilities. Such applications - called bots in our work - can be composed and deployed with multiple types of governance policies from cloud platforms to distributed hosting environments and they can access not only local data and devices but also cloud data and features. Therefore, it is a great challenge to govern them. In this paper, we discuss governance issues and state-of-the-art on supporting the emerging Bot-as-a-Service in sustainability governance platforms. Based on that we outline our approaches to policy development and enforcement for the Bot-as-a-Service model.
