'SOA Governance' Excerpt

1.64 MB | 3 files |  DOC, PDF

Learn about the basics of governance, including the building blocks of a governance system, from leading experts.

SOA Governance: Governing Shared Services On-Premise and in the Cloud” is the result of a multiyear project to collect proven industry practices for establishing IT governance controls specific to the adoption of SOA and service orientation. Authored by world-renowned experts in the fields of SOA, IT governance and cloud computing, this comprehensive book provides clear direction as to what does and does not constitute SOA governance and then steps the reader through the most important industry governance practices as they pertain to individual SOA project lifecycle stages.

With a consistent, vendor-neutral focus, and with the help of case study examples, the authors demonstrate how to define and position precepts, organizational roles, processes, standards and metrics. Readers benefit from thorough and visually depicted cross-references and mapping between roles, processes, precepts and project stages, enabling them to fully explore dynamics and dependencies and thereby learn how to use these governance controls to create their own custom SOA governance systems. This important title will be valuable to every practitioner concerned with making SOA work, including senior IT managers, project managers, architects, analysts, developers, administrators, QA professionals, security specialists and cloud computing professionals.

Bennett, Benjamin Carlyle, Clive Gee, Robert Laird, Anne Thomas Manes, Robert Moores, Robert Schneider, Leo Shuster, Andre Tost, Chris Venable and Filippos Santas.
