Michael Poulin elaborates on the differences between of governance and management and tries to explore the 'wonderland' of governance in a service-oriented environment. He defines SOA Governance, explores the relationship between governance and enterprise architecture, and discusses accountability and ownership of governance efforts, and how practitioners can instrument SOA governance.
This article, from Intel, discusses significant new threats to host agents, outlines a generic architecture for malware detection, based on enhanced cloud computing, describes how Intel platform technologies can be used to enhance computing solutions, and ends with a threat analysis of the approaches presented. Malware that masks its presence from traditional security agents is the article focus.
The authors, from Intel, offer a three pronged approach to providing secure transmission of high volume HTML traffic: new CPU instructions to accelerate cryptographic operations; a novel implementation of the RSA algorithm to accelerate public key encryption; and using SMT to balance web server and cryptographic operations. Their approach, they claim, leads to significant cost savings.
Botnets are the latest scourge to hit the Internet and this article provides and presents several promising anti-botnet defense strategies that specifically target current and emerging trends.
Answering: What are the cloud computing benefits, public or private clouds, providing infrastructure or a platform, how can a client enforce regulatory compliance, and others.
This article explores the structural economic changes brought up by service orientation and how the concept of services and the reuse of services promise long lasting relief from the cost treadmill.
This article discusses the combination of three ideas, virtualization, service-orientation, and grid computing into a single concept and computing platform concept.
The confluence of three technologies, (virtualization, service orientation, and grid computing), is explored to create a foundation for re-examining both technical and business system design issues. 2
Michael Poulin explains the necessity for SOA governance to ensure an Enterprise SOA's success, relying on concepts from the OASIS SOA Reference Model and Reference Architecture.
In this article, Ian Robinson discusses how consumer-driven contracts (stories for services and unit tests exchanged between service development streams) can strengthen the SOA development lifecycle. 2
In this article, MomentumSI's Ed Vazquez explains the basics of SOA governance, with an explicit focus on the need for a holistic SOA governance model and shared governance principles.
