The Business and the Governance of SOA
Nowadays and more than ever, embarking on an SOA initiative requires careful evaluation of business benefits, prudent
planning and staffing and the appropriate level of governance. Discover how to frame SOA to hit business value in the
context of a broader application strategy, how to coordinate SOA with Enterprise Architecture, how to align business and
IT, how to tackle the relevant organizational and governance challenges and how to derive value for the most advanced
architectural approaches such as events processing, BPM and multienterprise B2B.
