Infrastructure and Management Complete the Picture

To realize the value of SOA initiatives, companies are taking a planned approach to extending existing infrastructure and management capabilities in support of those projects. SOA requires thinking about these areas in a slightly different way. By effectively securing the infrastructure across the people, process, and information boundaries spanned by SOA projects, you can save money, reduce risks, and ensure compliance. Managing efficiently to gain visibility and control of SOA services and the components underneath them is critical for SOA project success.

By nature, SOA services can be virtualized. Making sure the infrastructure to support services is virtualized allows clients to place and prioritize the services for optimal business performance.

Address these keys to effective governance:

  • Establishing the right set of security for your services
  • Defining management within the context of SOA
  • Determining your virtualization needs to drive performance and the right use of resources
