Community Management: The Next Wave of SOA Governance and API Management
By Lionel Dubreuil-Oracle on Mar 22, 2013
While SOA Governance, as a discipline, has been around for a number of years, not every company that embarks on the adoption of SOA has decided to embrace it. In some cases, the runtime management of service is implemented, but not the design-time aspects. Now, with the introduction of Cloud Computing and the proliferation of mobile devices, the “new” discipline of API Management is surfacing. This session explores why API Management has emerged, its relationship with SOA governance, and why both of these disciplines will ultimately take a page from the business-to-business world and evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.
Tim Hall, VP of Oracle Product Management discusses, compares and contrasts SOA Governance and API Management, explaining why he believes they will evolve into a new discipline called “Community Management”.
