Most organizations now understand that SOA is an ideal means for bringing agility to enterprise business systems. However, with its many benefits SOA also brings new challenges. One of the most pressing issues is making sure that decentralized teams cooperate effectively. How do you coordinate efforts across departments, locations, time zones and priorities? How do you maximize re-use and ensure system-wide compliance with governance policies?

Overcoming these challenges could be the difference between success and failure for your SOA initiative.

Join Burton Group Vice President and Research Director Anne Thomas Manes and AmberPoint Vice President of Product Strategy Ed Horst for an informative look at these SOA requirements, approaches for solving them, and real-world examples of success.

What You'll Learn by Attending This Webcast:
  • Governance issues unique to SOA
  • The challenges of synchronizing the efforts of decentralized teams
  • Effective methods of ensuring that design-time intentions match runtime realities
  • Why automating discovery is essential
  • Real-world examples of successful SOA governance
