    What is governance?

    GovernanceThe establishment of chains of responsibility to empower people, measurement to gauge effectiveness, policies to guide the organization to meet its goals, control mechanisms to ensure compliance and communication to keep all required parties informed

    IT governanceThe application of governance to an IT organization, its people, processes and information to guide the way those assets support the needs of the business

    SOA governanceA specialization of IT governance that puts key IT governance decisions within the context of the lifecycle of service components, services and business processes. It is the effective management of this lifecycle that is the key goal to SOA governance



    Why SOA Governance?

    SOA Impact Governance requirements

    Distributed sourcing

    Virtualized Service Provisioning

    Numerous consumers

    Service aggregation

    Business and IT alignment

    Operational governance

    Usage governance

    Architectural governance

    Portfolio governance

    Sourcing / Provisioning governance

    SOA increases Governance requirements



    Implementation abstraction

    Structure applications using services

    Orchestrated solutions that work together

    Incremental development cycles

    Support business adaptability

    Known implementation

    Structuring applications using components and objects

    Tightly coupled

    Application silos

    One long development cycle

    Build for permanence

    Loosely coupled

    Process oriented


    Function oriented


    SOA governance is required to shift a company to SOA

    5. Fix works temporarily but problem


    4. Service is fixed at providers


    3. LOBs increase use

    of services / quality suffers





    2. Other LOBs start using

    the service

    1. Provide acurrency service that fills a specific line of business (LOB)

    Governance processes should make it easy to do things the right way and hard to do them the wrong way. Build schools, not prisons. The goal is to help people conform to best practices, not police them.

    Mark Ericson, chief technology officer (CTO), Mindreef

    What constitutes an SOA governance model?



    SOA governance requires a methodological and rigorous approach to be successful

    A comprehensive approach is needed to implement effective SOA governance that will:

    Assess the current organizational context of your organizationDefine a governance model that the organization will accept and embraceLeverage tooling to make governance operational and automaticFunction based on best practices, processes, principles, policies and a methodology

    Watch out for some potential traps in implementing SOA governance:SOA governance is not one size fits allSOA governance is not driven by toolsSOA governance addresses the uniqueness of service orientation. Leverage and extend IT governance to achieve SOA governanceSOA governance requires a non-siloed, consistent approach



    The Phases of Methodology; the SOA Governance and Management Method

    Design the governance approachDefine / modify governance processesDesign policies and enforcement mechanismsIdentify success factors and metricsIdentify owners and the funding modelCharter / refine an SOA center of excellenceDesign the governance IT infrastructure

    Scope the governance needDocument and validate the business strategy for IT and SOAAssess current IT and SOA capabilitiesDefine / refine the SOA vision and strategyReview current governance capabilities and arrangementsLay out the governance plan

    Manage and monitor the governance processes

    Monitor compliance with policiesMonitor compliance with governance arrangementsMonitor IT effectiveness metrics

    Put the governance model into action

    Deploy governance mechanisms Deploy the governanceIT infrastructureEducate and deploy on expected behaviors and practicesDeploy policies

    Define the scope of governance: business,

    development governance or service management or all of

    the above

    Define new governance processes for services and

    define SOA governance mechanisms such as the SOA

    Center of Excellence

    Begin implementation of the SOA Center of Excellence,

    Skills Enablement, Organizational Change,

    Infrastructure Change, etc.
