Solution Spotlight: SOA Governance Breeds Lightweight, Flexible Enterprise Architecture
It may seem counterintuitive, but experts say that the key to keeping service-oriented architecture (SOA) lightweight and flexible is actually to implement a comprehensive, well-planned out governance strategy.

In this e-guide, internationally recognized SOA thought leader and best-selling author David Linthicum shares best practices and helpful tips for implementing effective SOA governance that:
- Is lightweight
- Enables consistent, reusable services
- And is flexible enough to support agile and cloud projects.
