Cloud Computing: The Value of Application Service Governance for Cloud Computing
Source: Layer 7 Technologies
Governance as related to service, or application service governance, is most applicable to the use of cloud computing since companies basically define their Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) as a set of services that are relocate-able between on-premise and cloud computing-based systems, whether that be in a publicly hosted or private cloud environment. SOA is the approach here, and thus SOA or application service governance is the approach and the technology that will be leveraged to manage the services within the enterprise and cloud. The way in which one implements application service governance and security is just as important to the concept.
