SOA Software Ships Multi-Vendor Governance Tools for IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric

SOA Software, a provider of SOA and cloud services governance software, released a suite of governance products to help customers successfully plan, build and run applications for the IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric.

SOA Software's Unified SOA Governance Automation for the IBM WebSphere Business Services Fabric is designed to help companies employ IBM WebSphere products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms including Microsoft, Red Hat, Oracle, and SAP.

SOA Software has been working closely with IBM to build this capability, says Alistair Farquharson, chief technology officer of SOA Software. "The strong collaboration we have with the IBM engineering teams allowed us to bring fully functional products with comprehensive integration, to help our joint customers ensure the success of their SOA initiatives," he says. "We are very pleased to be able to announce this comprehensive set of product integrations that help customers deliver uniform, consistent governance of WebSphere-centric SOA programs."

Unified SOA Governance breaks down into three distinct areas: planning governance to make sure customers are building the right things; development governance to make sure services are bring built the right way; and operational governance to ensure what has been built is behaving correctly. SOA Software's Unified SOA Governance solution helps ensure that services companies identify, design and build using the WebSphere Business Services Fabric products are relevant to and consumable by applications they plan, design, build and deploy using other technologies - such as Microsoft or Oracle, or SAP.

In addition, the various components of the Unified SOA Governance suite - including SOA Software's Portfolio Manager, Repository Manager, Service Manager and Policy Manager - integrate with development and runtime products from most commercial platforms including IBM, SAP, Microsoft, and Oracle, as well as Red Hat and other open source providers.
