The Cornerstones of SOA Governance: Policies, Registries and Repositories

Cover
SOA is strategically imperative to an organization, but if the architecture is built without an effective governance strategy, the whole initiative is destined to fail. This white paper defines SOA governance, outlines its benefits and describes the two cornerstones of a SOA governance infrastructure: policy management and enforcement capabilities, and service registry and repository.

Learn how to define, enforce and audit policies across all of the existing systems to support the SOA lifecycle from design to deployment. Discover how Service Registry and Repository software governs services by promoting visibility and consistency, and by reducing redundancy in SOA. In this white paper you will learn:

  • What is SOA Governance and why it is imperative
  • Defining an effective SOA Governance strategy
  • How to effectively utilize a registry and repository
  • The role of policy management and enforcement
  • The concept of "continuous governance"
