Managing Service Oriented Architecture in your Organization from Planning to Decommissioning
SOA Governance aims at improving IT spending, mostly by assuring the adequate services are created, promoting their reuse and evolution. It also needs to provide correct information to support decision making, while promoting visibility over the existing enterprise assets.
However, the reality is that existing SOA tools are mainly technical-oriented towards specialized audiences and some views on information are simply not directly available to business.
A common language, symbol set, and structured viewpoints are the basic components of a successful communication for every target audience in a SOA Governance initiative. By deriving the fundamental concepts and mapping practices from Enterprise Architecture, information from a SOA bus can be filtered, organized and leveraged according to the needs of everyone involved.
