Community Management: The Next Wave of SOA Governance and API Management

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”.

Integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications: Discovering Integration Artifacts

Oracle Enterprise Repository serves as the core element to the Oracle SOA Governance solution.

An industry-leading metadata repository, Oracle Enterprise Repository provides a solid foundation for delivering governance throughout the service-oriented architecture (SOA) lifecycle by acting as the single source of truth for information surrounding SOA assets and their dependencies.

For Fusion Applications, the use of OER has been extended to include other integration asset types such as interface tables and other technical information such as data models, tables, views, lookups, profile options, et cetera. E-Business Suite users familiar with iRepository or eTRM will recognize the functionality in Fusion Applications OER.

Oracle Enterprise Repository for Fusion Applications provides a common catalog of technical information, searchable using many different mechanisms. Customers can locate technical information by the name, description or keyword of the information they are looking for. They can also search by the type of asset they are trying to locate and/or where the asset sits in the product taxonomy. They can also see the how the asset dances in the choreography of some illustrative co-existence scenarios. These scenarios are laid out as both functional flow diagrams as well as technical interaction diagrams.

Rajesh Raheja, software architect at Oracle, has recently posted an article on this topic: visibility and control are the key tenets to SOA governance, and the first step in integrating with Oracle Fusion Applications is to find out what are the integration options available. Oracle Enterprise Repository, an industry-leading metadata repository, provides this visibility.

You can find his full blog post here.
