Hewlett-Packard has introduced SOA governance services and software to help drive SOA adoption and business agility.
The set of service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance software and services will help companies drive increased SOA business value, while reducing potential risks, such as service disruption to the business, said HP.
In addition, HP announced the expansion of its Governance Interoperability Framework (GIF), one of the industry's first set of specifications for SOA governance interoperability.
SOA is an approach to delivering IT services in a secure and manageable way that uses loosely connected, reusable and standards-based technology that can be quickly aligned to changing business needs.
It claims the HP Validation and Implementation Services for SOA governance, performance and quality will help companies accelerate delivery of SOA services, reduce risk and maximise reuse of SOA services.
HP has also introduced services to install and configure HP SOA Systinet and HP SOA Manager, to enable a quicker return on a customer's software investment, HP said.
Also available is a new suite of SOA education and training courses that help customers translate SOA concepts into effective, governable service-based systems.
