Flashline and Herzum Software Partner to Optimize SOA

Partnership Simplifies Enterprise SOA From Architectural Design Through Service Deployment, Management And Reuse

Flashline and Herzum Software today announced a partnership to help organizations jumpstart their service-oriented architecture (SOA) programs. Herzum Software is providing joint customers consulting services based on its COSM approach to advance strategic, enterprise-wide SOA initiatives facilitated by the Flashline for SOA registry/repository.

For customers using Flashline for SOA for the governance and lifecycle management of Web services and related assets, Herzum Software's consulting services help address early-stage challenges critical for a successful SOA initiative. These consulting services include development of an SOA roadmap, blueprinting of enterprise architecture, creation of architectural and organizational design/patterns, construction of business and common services, and implementation of SOA-based integration and interoperability technologies.

Herzum Software's best practices for defining and executing an SOA program complement Flashline's best practices for the management and governance of SOA as a portfolio of assets for maximum business value. With a clear strategy, well-designed services, and strong governance practices, organizations will have established the foundation for strategic enterprise SOA enabled by the Flashline for SOA enterprise registry/repository. By implementing a repository at program inception, customers avoid the common mistake of adding governance as an afterthought, which can lead to SOA failure.

Flashline for SOA, an enterprise registry/repository for Web services and related assets, provides governance, lifecycle management and analytics for SOA. Fortune 500 organizations and Federal agencies are improving agility, decreasing complexity and increasing ROI with Flashline as the system of record for their SOA initiatives. Flashline for SOA provides patent-pending automation functionality that enables executives to monitor compliance with architecture standards and business priorities.

"A key component of a successful SOA program is a repository to capture, view and communicate the multitude of related deliverables from services specifications to integration use cases, program plans and blueprints," said Luigi Guadagno, Senior Vice President, Herzum Software. "Flashline for SOA provides the feature richness, flexibility and scalability needed by enterprises to manage the SOA challenges and to succeed with any SOA initiative."

Herzum Software's perspective of Enterprise SOA (ESOA) is a wide-impact, enterprise-level program created to support objectives in a business or IT strategy, leading to a simplified application portfolio, adaptive integration architecture, and a flexible IT organization managed as a business, for the business.
