A Financial Services Company Uses Progress Actional for Web Service Control, Better Governance, and Distributed SOA Management
Source: Progress Software
To fully leverage the SOA investment the U.S. financial services company wanted to expand access to local IT centers and to retool its infrastructure for better long-term manageability. The existing infrastructure lacked runtime service management and a registry/repository for SOA governance. As a result, corporate IT developers had no way of knowing what services existed and so created redundant services. The company chose Progress Actional SOA management software in addition to a standards-based service registry. This gave the company the two most important elements to control the lifecycle of services in its environment.
