Systinet 3.00 Provides Enterprise SOA Governance

Vote 0 Votes

Last week HP announced the release of HP SOA Systinet 3.00, which is aimed at making helping customers successfully move from a single SOA project to enterprise scale SOA. In actuality Systinet 3 is already in use by some customers. The date of the GA announcement coincided with the release of an ROI case study.

The three primary groups of users for Systinet are (1) Architects/Architecture Groups, and Centers of Excellence; (2) service providers; and (3) service producers. Architects, architecture teams, and centers of excellence can use Systinet 3 to monitor, manage, and elevate the consistency of business and governance process.

Services providers, the person or group responsible for the business service and overall evolution of the service, can use Systinet to understand and track how services are being used, and how they evolve to meet continuing business needs.

Service Consumers use services to create business solutions. Consumers need to know what services are available, levels of service supported, policies and processes. The repository is the central resource for all service information and usage.

The growth strategy for the enterprise class Systinet 3 is to expand across IT teams and Architects, then proceed into change management teams, and then upstream into portfolio management teams. Having a single platform across all helps support Business and IT alignment.

New features in HP SOA Systinet 3.00 include:
• Best-practices-driven automation. These are pre-built life cycles and templates that help bring non-experts up to speed quickly, and allow users to customize service life cycles using wizard-driven, graphical and application programming interfaces. Kelly Emo, HP Software's SOA Product Marketing Manager, stated that when new group needs to participate they can have something to use on day one. They just need to attach policies to pre-built lift cycles.
• Role-based visual dashboards that provide relevant information in a format that relates to each user's responsibilities.
• Integration across management tools integrates end-to-end life cycle management. Systinet can trigger business policies based on service quality through integration with HP Service Test Management or prompt actions to manage rogue services in production through integration with the HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB).
• Governance of business processes. Organizations can increase productivity in their business process management initiatives with business processes that are easier to discover and reuse.
• Enterprise scalability. Organizations can automate repetitive tasks across a large number of services with new support for bulk operations and life cycle cloning. This simplifies the implementation of major changes.
• Expanded support for standards. Systinet now supports BPEL. It registers BPEL process artifacts, and associates them with owners, stages, policies, and governance processes. This integrates the management of BPEL processes. Systinet also now supports Open CSA (previously SCA) and WSDL 2.0.
• Solution Offerings. Best practice solution templates, methodology, global SOA competency centers, and EDS services.

A demo of the software and the IDC report on "Reducing Operations Costs and Improving Customer Experience with HP SOA Management" are available.
