Building a SOA Governance Program

Anne Thomas Manes, VP & Research Director, Burton Group Research, Gartner, Inc.
Effective governance is a critical element in fostering a successful service oriented architecture (SOA) initiative. SOA governance directs the SOA initiative and helps ensure that it delivers value to the business. Unfortunately, numerous interviews with Burton Group clients reveal that many organizations don’t know which aspects of the SOA initiative to govern or how best to govern them. This session presents a framework for developing a SOA governance program.

  • Server Virtualization: Maturity Brings Complexity Recorded: Jan 21 2010 51 mins
    Server virtualization has matured to the level of enterprise production deployment resulting in increased complexity as it is integration into the enterprise data center environment. Mission critical workloads are being deployed in virtual environments in order to gain the flexibility and cost savings that server virtualization affords, however, these workloads demand enterprise level management and tight security controls that have heretofore not been required of virtual environments. In this presentation, Burton Group’s Data Center Strategies Service Director Richard Jones will walk through the trends and issues facing server virtualization as it finds its way into the production data center.
  • Leverage Data from Disparate Silos for Config and Change Mgmt. Recorded: Jan 14 2010 49 mins
    Successful Configuration and Change Management requires data from multiple sources. In addition to the configuration data that typically lives in the CMDB, to get a complete picture you must often pull together supplemental information about software applications. Information about software applications comes from diverse IT groups such as Operations, Security, Finance, Data Management, Help Desk, Project Management, and Enterprise Architecture. Each of these groups typically maintains a silo of their own information about software applications, which information could be quite valuable for Configuration and Change Management processes. You can’t force these groups to get rid of their own silos of information about software, so how can Configuration and Change Management processes use their data effectively? This presentation explains a case study in federating and harmonizing data about software applications from multiple silos.
  • Electronic Discovery: What's the Impact? Recorded: Dec 10 2009 45 mins
    Although it's been more than two years since the Supreme Court modified the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP)--which greatly elevated the status of electronically stored information for court cases--most organizations are still struggling to get their arms around the critical elements of eDiscovery. Many security and compliance teams have spent their careers justifiably focused on protecting information’s confidentiality; ensuring data availability and discoverability is a whole new game. This talk will review the major snags and snarls caused by eDiscovery and present both a maturity model and industry trends around the impact of electronic discovery.
  • Enabling Mobility without Compromising Security Recorded: Dec 8 2009 47 mins
    Today’s workforce is increasingly on the move and enterprises must meet the demands for secure access to information systems to support new business models. No longer can the enterprise dictate what device the employee will use for access – devices may be enterprise owned but enterprises must also support employee-owned and even or public access devices. The mobile workforce also includes non-employees that perform valuable services for the organization, and need limited access to protected systems.

    This talk will address:

    • Use cases for mobile workers
    • Technical solutions that may assist in managing the risk to the enterprise
    • Deployment considerations that enterprises should take into account
  • IT Contingency Planning for H1N1 Pandemic Recorded: Nov 6 2009 33 mins

  • Vendor Management in the Clouds - Ideas for Any Economic Climate Recorded: Sep 9 2009 57 mins
    Join CIO Executive strategist Jack Santos as he discusses vendor management strategies with licensing expert Ania Levy of Levy Legette.

    An expense strategy that works regardless of economic climate (good or bad) coupled with a growth in cloud-based IT makes supplier relationship skills a core competency for IT departments. Meanwhile, software vendors continue to make the licensing process unnecessarily complex, and both parties lack the lessons of experience to police and administer agreements.
    Ms. Levy’s extensive experience with vendor negotiation, contract review, and software licensing will enable her to share with us her insights into the world of vendor and contract management.
  • 2010 Planning Guide: Data Management Strategies Recorded: Aug 26 2009 40 mins
    Enterprises continue to consider ways to cut their IT costs by externalizing their IT functions, through software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, and outsourcing. However, these strategies alone will not fulfill an enterprise’s compliance and profitability mandates. Enterprises are facing demands for regulatory transparency and for economic profitability. To meet these demands, enterprises will need to obtain better information from their existing information systems. An effective strategy for returning to economic growth and for satisfying regulatory requirements in 2010 must include data governance and competent data management.

  • The Potential Impact of Oracle & Sun on Identity Management Recorded: Jun 23 2009 58 mins
    The April 20th announcement that Oracle is acquiring Sun Microsystems sent huge shockwaves through the IT marketplace. This is particular true of the identity management (IdM) market in which there is significant overlap between the two vendors’ offerings. Customers are concerned about their IdM investments and are eager to learn what the combined product roadmap has in store. Many Sun/Oracle customers must make product selection decisions during the quiet period for the acquisition – they can’t stop their businesses until the product roadmap is released. In this BrightTalk presentation, Burton Group Sr. Analyst Lori Rowland and Vice President and Research Director Bob Blakley will discuss the potential impact of the acquisition on IdM customers and advise organizations on steps they should take today to ensure the best possible outcome.

  • 5 Things You Should Do Before Moving E-mail to the Cloud Recorded: Jun 5 2009 48 mins
    Enterprise SaaS e-mail is an early sign of change coming to IT organizations that enable the challenges of deploying to cloud based platforms. Now is the time for enterprises to examine their e-mail needs and what they are presently spending on e-mail and identify the constraints of moving to SaaS offerings. As part of any evaluation, enterprises need to allocate time for both technical and vendor due diligence covering identity management, security, risk management, networking, and application development requirements that meet the business’s technical needs. This webcase outlines Burton Group proposed approach to assist enterprises in avoiding roadblocks and understand a hybrid or fully hosted email environment.
  • Catalyst Preview - Laying SOA to Rest Recorded: Jun 3 2009 11 mins
    Many service oriented architecture (SOA) initiatives have stalled or failed. And prospects for SOA look bleak in 2009. Most organizations have cut funding for their SOA initiatives. Except in rare situations, SOA has failed to deliver its promised benefits. It's time to face reality: the term "SOA" now carries too much baggage. It's time to declare that SOA is dead and move on to the more practical matter of bringing up its offspring. SOA's untimely demise is tragic, but, fortunately, many aspects of SOA live on-particularly in the form of services. Services provide the fundamental building blocks that enable software as a service (SaaS), cloud computing, and business process management (BPM). This Catalyst track will examine the myths and misconceptions that derailed SOA efforts, provide guidance for salvaging value, and supply actionable direction for future efforts.

    Face it. Your SOA initiative has failed. So where do you go from here?
