Is SOA Governance's Future Cloudy?
By Dave Berry-Oracle on Jan 20, 2010
Bob Rhubart, the Oracle SOA Governance community guru sent around the links below to these discussions about the changes to design time governance in a Cloud Computing environment. I tend to agree with Todd Biske and take issue with Dave Linthicum statements that "cloud computing may eventually kill off ... design-time service governance". While this could be true for some minimal number of use cases generally the need to plan for and manage the deployment of services and security policies to the cloud or "uber container" as I see it will not be significantly impacted. I mean, is David saying that new services being deployed to the cloud do not require sign off by various levels of IT management, QA, business steakholders and developement managers? As an example, now that our kids are in day school (the cloud), we still have to prepare them each day by making sure they are properly clothed and fed in the morning.
