SOA Software Announces Repository Federation Solution


SOA Software, an SOA and Cloud Services Governance provider, announced the availability of SOA federation capabilities in its Repository Manager product.

ebizQ received the following:

The SOA federation capabilities in SOA Software's Repository Manager product help customers share software development asset information effectively within and outside the enterprise, govern how this information is shared, and integrate this information throughout the organization's heterogeneous software development ecosystem.

These federation capabilities benefit IT organizations by providing a single point for software information across disparate systems in the development environment, automating enterprise wide SOA policies and industry SOA best practices, and driving checkpoint-based development governance (e.g., triggering, coordinating and documenting code reviews, requiring complete end-user documentation for enterprise-shared services), thereby making better use of high-demand architectural and technical resources.

Software development today is typically geographically distributed and often requires working closely with offshore teams and partners. A software asset repository is a key part of any distributed software development environment. Such repositories not only need to be able to govern production and consumption of software information, but also govern what information needs to be shared, and with whom; both within and outside the IT organization.

By integrating effectively with other systems in the software development ecosystem such as source code control systems, defect management systems, requirements management systems and others, repositories provide a normalized and consolidated view over these systems. Effective repositories should also integrate seamlessly with downstream systems such as runtime registries.

"The ability to effectively automate and enforce SOA policies and best practices is critical for a successful enterprise wide SOA program. Enterprises need a single point for consolidating software information from multiple systems in their development ecosystem to make and automate effective governance decisions," said Brent Carlson, senior vice president of technology at SOA Software. "Companies also need a single point of control for one or more SOA registry/repositories such as IBM WSRR, HP Systinet, and others. Repository Manager's strong federation capabilities ensure that SOA standards and policies are enforced consistently throughout the enterprise."

Some use the term Enterprise 2.0 exclusively to describe the use of social networking technologies in the enterprise, while others use it to describe a web economy platform, or the technological framework behind such a platform. Still others say that Enterprise 2.0 is all of these things. Learn More
