SOA Software Announces Integrated SOA Governance for SAP NetWeaver and Enterprise SOA

Company to certify the SAP NetWeaver Business Process Platform as a Governed Service Platform

Los Angeles, Calif., May 5th, 2008SOA Software, a leading Integrated SOA Governance Automation vendor, today announced that it will certify SAP NetWeaver as a Governed Service Platform. This allows customers to confidently use SAP Enterprise SOA solutions implemented with NetWeaver products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms like IBM WebSphere, Microsoft, BEA, and Oracle, as well as RedHat and other open source providers.

Certified Governed Service Platform status means that customers can be confident that their platforms will not compromise the fidelity of the governance systems and structures defined in an enterprise SOA program.

SAP NetWeaver customers add SOA Software’s Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution to SAP Enterprise SOA solutions with NetWeaver:

  • Ensure that services they identify, design and build using their NetWeaver products are relevant and consumable to applications they design, build and deploy using other technologies like Microsoft and IBM.
  • Make services they expose from applications running on NetWeaver products visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across other platforms; and make services they design and build using other platforms like Microsoft and open source environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across by their NetWeaver applications.
  • Promote, ensure and formalize consistent alignment between demand from service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer Contract Provisioning.
