Q2 2011

Unified SOA and Cloud Services Governance

Plan, Build, and Run Everything-as-a-Service®


Here is your SOA Software Update for Q2 2011.
Topics include:

Product Highlight: Repository Manager

SOA Software Repository Manager™ enables enterprises to understand what services and other software assets exist, where they're located and how each fits into a company's business and technical landscape. By providing a context for understanding and assessing existing software assets, Repository Manager serves to automate the path to SOA.

Repository Manager™ is an industry-leading development governance platform that automates machine and role-based signoffs across the software development lifecycle. Development governance occurs as a service moves through the various phases of the software development lifecycle. Without development governance, SOA initiatives will fail to deliver agility to the enterprise - the core value of SOA. Enterprises must be able to track all of the components of SOA, changing them as needed while maintaining a clear understanding of underlying interdependencies. This holistic perspective can only be achieved through effective development governance.

Repository Manager's strong integration with leading application development environments, federation with all major service registries and extensive integration with Policy Manager™ enables customers to rapidly develop, govern and deploy services and their supporting assets within the SOA service lifecycle. Repository Manager is used by Fortune 500 customers to drive application agility and reduce cost and risk in their SOA deployment.
