The session will be lab-based giving you hands-on experience on the most popular customer use cases with OER.

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”.

Partner Webcast: Oracle SOA Governance - 4 October 2012

Oracle is pleased to invite you to a webcast on "Oracle SOA Governance Strategy" intended for our partners. SOA Governance is the framework that enables you to define and enforce rules for communication, collaboration, service development, management and usage across the enterprise and among the decision makers. It also allows you to define metrics to assess the quality of services and to measure their cost and benefits for your organization.

Service Oriented Architecture comes with a promise! A promise to make your business more agile by the ability to create reusable services developed and deployed in cooperation between the business and IT.

This promise can only be kept, if all the involved parties in your enterprise, across departments communicate and collaborate efficiently on establishing and maintaining and developing the service oriented assets. Such collaboration requires guidance and control.

In this webcast you will hear about the key factors needed to establish successful SOA governance both from organizational as well as from technical point of view.

Agenda:

  • Introduction to SOA
  • Challenges of SOA governance
  • SOA governance principles
  • Governing Service lifecycle
  • Rules for choosing a service
  • Q&A session

Cover Story: Solving the SOA Governance puzzle: Taking a "Bite-Sized" approach

An article titled "Solving the SOA
Governance puzzle: Taking a "Bite-Sized" approach" authored by Oracle's Jyothi Swaroop was published as the
cover story in the December issue of Service Technology Magazine.



Abstract:
SOA Governance initiatives help organizations optimize their service-oriented architecture (SOA) by providing a means to reduce risk, maintain business alignment and show the business value of SOA investments. But all too often these initiatives can be seen as daunting projects that are overly broad and complex, require too many resources and are too time consuming.  In this article, Oracle’s Jyothi Swaroop will explain how organizations can take an incremental approach to SOA governance initiatives to meet their specific needs. This will include an overview of how SOA governance technologies can support specific tactical level projects and yet ensure the organization is able to optimize the entire lifecycle of its SOA.

Finding the Value in SOA by Stephen Bennett

Here's an excerpt from a very interesting article on CIO update titled "Finding the value in SOA" by Stephen Bennett of Oracle

"Because of this, SOA must not be seen as a solution development approach that starts and ends once a solution is delivered. It must be seen as an on-going process that, when coupled with a strategic framework, can change and evolve with the business over time. Unfortunately, many enterprises adopt SOA without utilizing a strategic framework, causing a host of challenges for their business.


Just a few of the challenges I have seen include:



  • More complexity and moving parts

  • Increased costs

  • Projects taking longer than before

  • Solutions more fragile than ever

  • Little or no agility

  • Difficulty identifying and discovering services

  • Exponentially growing governance challenges

  • Limited service re-use

  • Duplication of effort leading to service sprawl

  • Multiple siloed technology focused SOAs

  • Funding for service oriented projects being cut"

News Facts

governance technologies, much like any other set of technologies, are striving
to address needs beyond SOA to initiatives not having the SOA label, but are
built according to a service-oriented model. Process governance, governing
cloud interactions and interactions with business partners (e.g. integration
brokerages) are part of the functionality set, or at least are on the radar for
most technology providers.”

efficiently and effectively manage the SOA lifecycle under a unified governance
umbrella.
