An SOA implementation which lacks governance is often unable to deliver expected SOA benefits, resulting in incompatible services, unreliable composite applications, inconsistent data and poor service reuse. Such implementations are subsequently unable to achieve business and SOA objectives, minimizing the projects overall rate of success.

This white paper details the best practices necessary for effective SOA governance. Learn the importance of aligning the various areas within a company to attain the maximum benefits from an SOA implementation. Learn the six steps necessary to increase SOA governance effectiveness in an efficient and change-resilient manner, including how to:

  • Define SOA goals, strategies and constraints
  • Determine standards, policies, and procedures
  • Define success factors
  • Enact governance mechanisms
  • Analyze results of governance policies
  • Re-evaluate and refine an SOA strategy
