Podcast: Taking Charge: Meeting SOA Governance Challenges

Truly successful service oriented architecture involves a lot more than having a portfolio of services. The development and use of those services and other software assets within the SOA architecture must be guided by specific principles to insure that when, where, and how those services and other assets are used drives the organization toward its goals. That guidance is what SOA Governance is all about.

This four-part OTN ArchBeat Podcast series gives you a seat at a roundtable discussion with four experts on the current state in the evolution of SOA Governance: what old problems persist, what new problems have presented themselves, and what can be done to implement an efficient and effective SOA governance program.
