287848 SOA Governance 14 hours Governance Framework A Services Oriented Architecture governance program doesn't make operational decisions. SOA governance sets policies by deciding what decisions must be made, who should make them and how to make them. In a shared services environment like an enterprise SOA, no governance or dysfunctional governance, or even a bad governance policy, can have severe and negative impacts across the enterprise. This two-day workshop shows you how to do SOA right. You will learn how to design, build and operate an effective governance framework for creating, communicating and enforcing corporate web service policies throughout the enterprise SOA. SOA Policies The workshop focuses on showing you how to create the processes and policies that establish and manage shared web services. As organizations start to employ web services via an enterprise SOA, they move from "silo to shared." Ownership of the underlying business process transfers from a single business area and "externalizes" into an enterprise responsibility. SOA governance directs and coordinates the processes needed to accept and exercise the responsibility for shared Web Services on behalf of all of the stake-holders. What is SOA Governance? Compliance to standards or laws Change management Ensuring quality of services Managing the portfolio of services Managing the service lifecycle Using policies to restrict behavior Monitoring performance of services The SOA Governance issue Governance appearing as SOA initiatives A dynamic environment for services to interact Encouraging the reuse of services Controlling how services interact with each other The long-term ROI and manageability Governance questions Where they start on the governance ladder? Governance as core feature of any SOA initiative Establishing a timeline Personnel training and operational procedures Putting skills and procedures in place well ahead SOA Governance Stages First: realization that governance is needed Second: governance improving business execution Third: mixing technology & changes in behavior Fourth: technology selection & implementation Service Management Design-time perspective Run-time perspective Repository of service for reuse Services contained in heterogeneous platforms Service-virtualization for run-time management of services Critical governance components Service registry service and an asset repository Creating a "SOA Centre of Excellence” Focusing on establishing SOA organizational guidelines The organizational maturity Agreed governance policies SOA Governance tools Real time monitoring of events Failures in a BSM framework Service-level instrumentation Hooking into operational management systems Virtualization as enabler to separate governance/service logic Service virtualization managed by operational staff Achieving governance Measuring the goals for governance The internal audit Automating the audit Developing core SOA governance Why SOA technology stack has grown complex Mixing between COTS & in-house Justifying external consultants to help out Figuring out which business we are really in Roles and responsibilities involved in SOA Governance Establishing a SOA Centre of Excellence Enterprise-wide planning and assistance in execution The roles of the SOA architect/governance architect Solving potential conflicting interests Ensure that governance guidelines are followed Barriers to SOA governance Not realizing the need for governance Lack of Governance technologies Lack of Service virtualizations State of good governance Interaction with external parties Managing the business rules and BRE mgmt Regulations for good governance The agreements repository Proactively embedding governance in the business Governance by action rather than by statement SLA monitoring to establish premium prices Critical success factors Start thinking about governance early View governance as a moving target Manage policies as entities with their own lifecycles Choose a technology platform The platform should address immediate governance needs Future support as SOA infrastructure scales Enforce service level agreements Service virtualization External configuration of encryption & routing Authentication and schema validation Transferring control from programmers to operational staff Alleviating many of the SOA core pains Avoiding services with internal policies Technology and deployment neutral services The 'dark path' in SOA What if the service produces non-compliant data Logging, tracking and auditing Halting erroneous operations as they occur Involving corrective business processes Final thoughts and Conclusions Greatest challenges with SOA Critical aspects of SOA governance Service reuse as a key benefit of SOA The governance of reuse Visibility, risk and control
1780 Enabling SOA with BPM and BPMN 14 hours Although SOA is not specific to BPM software, there are a number of natural synergies between BPM and SOA. Perhaps most obvious of these is the separation of business process management as an independent function, allowing processes to be designed independently of any single application and leveraged as shared business logic. BPM in Context The many faces of BPM The BPM umbrella BPM and Governance Industry players Maturity within the market Current BPM challenges The future of BPM BPM Layering What is layering? Common layers Auxiliary layers The BPM stack Digesting the layers Layering rules of thumb The State of Standards Standards – Friend or foe?
