Lack of effective Governance is the single most common reason why organisations fail to successfully implement Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). Misalignment with business strategies, poor reference architectures, low quality designs and code, lack of service reuse and visibility over service operational metrics are just a few of the many reasons why SOA implementations fail.

In today’s technological landscape where the internet and I.T. can drive the success of a business, organisations must ensure that technology and business objectives are fully aligned and delivering the same goals.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural style created specifically to address today’s fast paced technological challenges. When implemented properly, SOA can deliver future-proofed, flexible I.T solutions that are well suited to underpin the I.T. landscape of organisations today.

Oracle SOA Governance 11g Implementation illustrates how to successfully implement SOA Governance in your Organisation. To achieve this the book describes how goals and objectives need to be clearly captured and used to align Governance processes with Governance tools, Governance tools with people, and people with the different roles and responsibilities that are required to implement effective governance.

This book describes, by example, how to implement the Oracle SOA Governance suite of products in order to deliver design-time and runtime governance, with the aim being to deliver an effective and agile IT landscape that fully supports key business processes.

The book begins by giving the reader a short but concise overview of SOA Governance and outlines its mains goals and objectives. Issues discussed include the key SOA governance challenges faced by organizations, how a SOA Maturity Assessment can be used to identify the key Governance challenges and how to align projects to deliver Design-time and runtime governance.

The book then presents a Case Study that is based on real world SOA governance implementations from the authors and shows how SOA Governance, when done right, delivers many benefits to the organization.
The book shows how to implement each of the Products contained in the Oracle SOA Governance Suite to address specific design-time and runtime Governance challenges, all set in the context of the Case Study.
