The SOA Governance feature I did for InfoWorld is up today. There are four parts:
- Governing SOA - Rules, standards, and policies are the difference between playing with SOAP and real SOA.
- A degree of tolerance for SOA -- There's a danger in going too far.
- Exclusive: Infravio brings structure to unwieldy SOA -- A review of X-Registry 5, one of a handful of tools that form and infrastructure for governance.
- Understanding UDDI -- A quick reference to UDDI-compatible registries.
This was a fun series to do and I learned a lot writing it.
Steve Fox wrote an intro for the whole series. As Steve mentions, I'll be leading a panel on this topic at the InfoWorld Executive Forum in March. I'll be posting more about that as we approach the date and soliciting ideas for questions. I'm trying to put the panel together and mostly interested in people doing SOA rather than vendors selling governance products. I've got a couple of good people lined up so far. If you've got suggestions for others, let me know.
