"To be effective, governance must be platform independent, adaptive to client consumption and service provider needs, and closed-loop in the sense that situational awareness is provided. I think SOA Software's recent revision of Service Manager (version 5.0) coupled with Workbench 5.0 serves these functions in fine fashion."
