This paper describes the instantiation process of a Verification & Validation (V&V) method developed for evaluating the implementation of Future Internet components in a multi-sectorial environment. ICT systems represent a key competitive factor for enterprises, and new application development paradigms are emerging with e.g. a modular approach based on standard, open and cloud-based components. The utilization of modules coming from different sources emphasizes the need for a sound V&V approach in order to ensure that the final solution is of quality, accords to the existing standard and at the same time addresses the original business needs. The proposed approach is based on a standard V&V methodology characterized by a structured assessment of the software quality at different levels and a reduced set of business indicators able to evaluate the business impact of the integrated solution; all of these are deployed via a configurable V&V Package based on a web interface. At the end of the paper the practical experiences and lessons learned from our work are also described.
