Summary

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) policy adds important business and technical flexibility to an SOA-based solution, and it requires coordinated use of features and functions from multiple types of software tools and infrastructure products. Architects building their organization's infrastructure for SOA policy management should work from a logical architecture, outlining the major functions required for effective policy management and how they work together. For both runtime and development time SOA policy, this sets the right foundation for understanding the relationships between different products and for deciding which products to use and how to integrate them. Establish this strong architectural foundation to facilitate planning for both near-term benefits and long-term evolution of your SOA policy management infrastructure.
