Service Oriented Architectures hold tremendous promise for reduced costs and increased agility. But how you implement SOA will determine whether or not you achieve your goals. Struggling with heavyweight, complex, and expensive proprietary SOA platforms can quickly sap any potential ROI gains. The JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform is the first comprehensive open source SOA offering to integrate enterprise service bus, business process management and rules engine technology into a single platform. Designed to accelerate business process execution within and across enterprises, the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform can help enable greater business performance more simply, openly and cost-effectively than proprietary SOA platforms.
In addition to choosing the right SOA platform, it's also critical to have a plan in place for SOA Governance in order to reach your ROI goals. SOA Software works closely with the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform to provide comprehensive SOA Governance capabilities. The SOA Software certification of JBoss Enterprise SOA platform as a Governed Service Platform ensures that customers can preserve the benefits of their Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution when deploying the best-in-class open source SOA platform as a governable constituent within an enterprise SOA program.
