SOA Governance Session Keynote Presentation

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) enables organizations to deploy software and business services. The emergence of standards-based service infrastructure enables reuse and business agility. A well governed SOA can help align IT and business objectives and result in a more agile and flexible IT system. A federated Registry-based services catalog is an essential starting point for discovering and reusing services. Beyond this, an integrated policy Repository and lifecycle Governance features are needed to form the foundation for delivery of software and business services.
