Here is your SOA Software Update for Q4 2011.
Topics include:

Product Highlight: Repository Manager

SOA SoftwareDeveloping software using agile methodologies and SOA requires 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, SOA Software Repository Manager enables sound Development Governance. It automates machine and role-based signoffs across 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.
