Practical Management for SOA Development

Loraine Lawson

It's always nice -- though rare -- to find SOA articles that provide simple, down-to-earth and immediately actionable advice. Most articles, particularly on SOA governance, are pretty strategic and, therefore, a bit vague.

 

What are harder to write, and therefore find, are articles giving tactical advice for implementing governance. That's a shame, since SOA's success may ultimately depend on its governance.

 

Which is why I implore you to check out "Five Rules for Development-time SOA Governance."

 

The article is written by Dr. Kelly Shaw, an analyst with Serena Software, which specializes in application lifecycle management. So, instead of a general governance discussion, Shaw focuses on what she calls development-time governance or, put simply, governance rules for developers.

 

While her focus is on providing governance guidelines -- for instance, work with business users and focus on delivered applications -- you'll also find practical management advice.


 

Here are my favorite tips from the article:

Shaw's article is a solid, quick read. Check it out -- then share it with your development team and SOA project managers.
