HP announced new service oriented architecture (SOA) governance software and services to speed up the adoption of SOA-related projects.
The latest release of HP SOA Systinet software includes complete run-time governance of SOA services and service lifecycle management through an enhanced integration with its SOA Manager application.
It also allows developers to proactively check new and existing services against policies established through an Eclipse-based policy validation plug-in—essentially an automated quality-control function that makes sure new services such as opening a new account or verifying a mailing address conform to a company's business and IT requirements before its installed into production.
The SOA Systinet software makes it possible for software makers to view progress in SOA adoption across different applications and services. The announcements are aimed at companies beginning to venture into SOA-based projects.
