SOA Software, an SOA and cloud services governance provider, announced the availability of a suite of governance products to help customers successfully plan, build and run applications for the IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric.

ebizQ received the following:

SOA Software's products provide Unified SOA Governance Automation for the IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric. This enables customers to use IBM WebSphere products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms including Microsoft, RedHat, Oracle, and SAP.

Unified SOA Governance breaks down into distinct areas; Planning Governance is about making sure that you are building the right things, Development Governance is about making sure you're building them the right way, and Operational Governance is about ensuring that what you've built is behaving correctly.

IBM Customers add SOA Software's Unified SOA Governance Automation solution to the IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric to:

-- Ensure that services they identify, design and build using the WebSphere Business Services Fabric products are relevant to and consumable by applications they plan, design, build and deploy using other technologies like Microsoft or Oracle, or buy from other vendors like SAP. -- Make services they expose from applications running on WebSphere Business Services Fabric products visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across other platforms; and make services they design and build using other platforms like Microsoft and open source environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across their WebSphere Business Services Fabric applications. -- Promote and ensure consistent alignment between demand from service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer Contract Provisioning.

SOA Software's platform-independent Unified SOA Governance Automation solution promotes the use of best-practices throughout an enterprise SOA program regardless of where services and consumers are designed, built, deployed and operated. Portfolio Manager, Repository Manager, Service Manager and Policy Manager integrate seamlessly with development and runtime products from most commercial platforms including IBM, SAP, Microsoft, and Oracle, as well as RedHat and other open source providers.

Policy Manager provides a powerful policy framework for operational, compliance and Quality of Service policy definition, attachment and auditing. Service Manager provides a set of intermediaries that abstract service and application containers from the implementation, enforcement and auditing of operational, security, management and QoS policies. Policy Manager is available with specific versions targeted and specific platforms, and Service Manager is available for a wide range of service and application containers.

SOA Software's governance solution for IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric includes:

-- Service Manager Agent for IBM WebSphere Teamworks -- Service Manager Agent for IBM WebSphere Process Server -- Service Manager Agent for IBM WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus -- Policy Manager for WebSphere Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) -- Service Manager Agent for IBM WebSphere Application Server

SOA Software also offers comprehensive governance solutions for other IBM products with:

-- Policy Manager for WebSphere DataPower -- Service Manager Agent for IBM WebSphere Message Broker -- Repository Manager Asset Adapter for IBM Rational ClearCase -- Repository Manager Asset Adapter for IBM Rational ClearQuest -- Policy Manager for Rational Team Concert -- Portfolio Manager for IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric
