SOA governance architecture at ICWS

Later this summer, at ICWS [1], I will be presenting some of the ideas developed during the last few months on SOA governance [2]. In our quest to find a way to render business capabilities (e.g. web services) exposure and management easier, we have developed an architectural model that describes how to go at it.

The main points covered are resource (e.g. a software artefact such as a service) contextualisation, visibility, adaptation and life-cycle management as well as policy administration and process management. I know, there is a lot to cover in just 8 standard IEEE style pages, but apparently we’ve managed to do a good enough job for the reviewers to accept the paper.

If you would like more information on the topic please do drop me an email.
