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"
