What’s holding your SOA environment together? You’ve got services, you’ve got processes, you probably even have registries. But do you have good governance? Because if you don’t, your SOA environment probably won’t hold together for long. And it definitely won’t increase your business agility or save you money.
Good governance policies, practices and technologies can help organizations do more with less, and make the resources they already have more effective and efficient, especially in complex areas such as SOA, risk management, security and compliance. Good governance approaches can also save companies money by increasing reuse, reducing wasted efforts and providing ways to monitor IT and business objectives.
Attend this panel discussion, moderated by Upside Research analyst David A. Kelly to get a no-holds barred look at smart approaches to SOA Governance. We’ll take a close look at how organizations are successfully using SOA governance to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of their SOA environment and business agility.
If you are considering (or have deployed) SOA-based applications, you need to attend this round table. The following topics will be covered:
- What is a smart approach to SOA Governance?
- Case studies of successful SOA Governance implementations
- Tips for saving money by building governance
- Recommended starting points for good governance
- SOA Governance best practices
