Ecology of Support Critical For Cloud, SOA

TIBCO joins governance ecology support with HP's SOA lifecycle software

TIBCO Software is expanding its governance solutions for service-oriented architecture (SOA) and will now provide support for Hewlett-Packard (HP) SOA Systinet lifecycle governance software.

ActiveMatrix Policy Manager and Service Performance Manager from TIBCO combined with HP SOA Systinet are designed to reduce risk and improve management of SOA environments, including identifying and defining appropriate services, managing the lifecycle of service assets, and measuring effectiveness. [Disclosure: TIBCO and HP are sponsors of BriefingsDirect podcasts.]

Governance has proved important when adopting SOA solutions by preventing delays in software delivery from compliance interoperability, security risks, and poor service quality. The topic has been a hot one at this week's Open Group conference in Toronto.

Companies that have been early adopters of end-to-end governance have seen significant results. One global telcom company saw a 327 percent return on investment (ROI) over three years, something they attributed to well-managed SOA governance, according to TIBCO.

We should expect to see more governance ecology cooperation like this one. And these same vendors should support standards and collaboration efforts like the Jericho Forum and Cloud Security Alliance, if the promise of cloud computing is to be realized. Vendors and/or cloud providers that try to provide it all their own way will only delay or sabotage the benefits that cloud can provide.
