Leveraging Your Investment In SOA Service Life-Cycle Management

Tools Can Bring Value To Other IT Processes

July 11, 2008


Why Read This Report

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) service life-cycle management solutions, sometimes called SOA repositories, are significant investments, with enterprise licenses ranging from $300,000 to well over $1 million. With this price tag, leveraging the investment as much as possible is just good business — and can help justify these systems in the first place. The basic process that these tools support fits any number of IT or other business processes, including processes closely related to enterprise architecture. Understanding the basic structure of the process and the available customizations makes it much easier to identify and exploit opportunities to leverage your life-cycle management tool and also opens the door to automating key processes, such as architecture review, that on their own would not justify an automated solution.
