Enterprise SOA Architecture
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance is an essential aspect of an effective SOA initiative. Poor enterprise SOA governance can lead to catastrophe, while quality SOA governance can position your organization for powerfully positive business and IT outcomes. Technology, business processes, and external business relationships all require and depend on effective enterprise SOA governance to successfully execute and manage enterprise SOA programs across the organization and beyond. Taking a holistic approach to enterprise SOA governance is the only way to ensure proper context, linkages and alignment of enterprise governance processes with SOA-specific governance processes.
 

SOA is a maturing discipline, and is evolving with the advent of API management. It is critical to embrace these next generation SOA governance philosophies in order for enterprise SOA architecture and governance to be effective and support the transition to mobile, social media, Cloud and Big Data. Current governance challenges include lack of a collective approach to policies, no concept of integrated policy enforcement, and an overall poor understanding of how SOA governance relates to other enterprise governance disciplines and processes.

AgilePath’s SOA Philosophy

AgilePath will help you design an end-to-end SOA governance model, from the SOA PMO/CoE, to services modeling, business engagement models and enterprise architecture/design-time governance requirements, to a service portfolio, SOA registry/repository, complete services lifecycle, as well as the QA/testing tools and the run-time SOA infrastructure needed to close the loop with run-time governance.
