Software AG and GloMidCo have joined their forces and experience in the area of SOA governance. Both companies strongly believe that SOA governance is essential in order to be successful with any SOA initiative. The need of governance is understood and confirmed by many of our clients. Those clients started by finding custom ways of fulfilling their governance needs, mostly via manual registration (e.g. Microsoft Excel or Word), Wiki implementations or formal approval processes.
No matter how effective these solutions are, they reach their limit when service landscapes get more complex or when different aspects of SOA governance have to be combined. Those aspects can be version control, life cycle management, dependency documentation, asset repository and many more. Software AG and GloMidCo offer the combination of Software AG's free CentraSite Community Edition and GloMidCo’s consultancy experience in SOA governance solutions. This does not only include the installation and configuration of a software tool, it also involves transforming an IT organization. This is where GloMidCo can take over the leading role and add value by making it a success.
