SOA Governance: Where the Rubber Meets the Runtime



Harold van Aalst explains the need to use proper governance for SOA implementations by defining the rules, policies and standards to follow and having a tool to monitor them at runtime in order to discover when they are broken to be able to act on time. Beside the usual design-time governance, Aalst details on Development, Deployment and Runtime Governance.
