SOA Software Announces Integrated SOA Governance for SAP NetWeaver and Enterprise SOA

Company to Certify the SAP NetWeaver Business Process Platform as a Governed Service Platform

SOA Software announced that it will certify SAP NetWeaver as a Governed Service Platform. This allows customers to confidently use SAP Enterprise SOA solutions implemented with NetWeaver products as part of a heterogeneous enterprise SOA environment sharing services with other commercial SOA platforms like IBM WebSphere, Microsoft, BEA, and Oracle, as well as RedHat and other open source providers.

Certified Governed Service Platform status means that customers can be confident that their platforms will not compromise the fidelity of the governance systems and structures defined in an enterprise SOA program.

SAP NetWeaver customers add SOA Software's Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution to SAP Enterprise SOA solutions with NetWeaver:

  • Ensure that services they identify, design and build using their NetWeaver products are relevant and consumable to applications they design, build and deploy using other technologies like Microsoft and IBM.
  • Make services they expose from applications running on NetWeaver products visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across other platforms; and make services they design and build using other platforms like Microsoft and open source environments visible to and compliant with enterprise policies defined, enforced and audited across by their NetWeaver applications.
  • Promote, ensure and formalize consistent alignment between demand from service consumers and the supply of services through Consumer Contract Provisioning.

SOA Software's platform-independent Integrated SOA Governance Automation solution promotes the use of best-practices throughout an enterprise SOA program regardless of where services and consumers are designed, built, deployed and operated. SOA Software's Solutions offer deep integration with the SAP NetWeaver Business Process Platform components including: Exchange Infrastructure (XI), Process Integration (PI), Composition Environment (CE), Enterprise Services Repository and Registry (ESR), and the SAP NetWeaver Application Server (WebAS).

"We are pleased to announce that we are certifying the SAP NetWeaver Business Process Platform as a governed service platform," said Frank Martinez, executive vice president of SOA Software. "This certification will provide our joint customers the requisite assurances that Enterprise SOA-based adoption of SAP NetWeaver will enhance the effectiveness and fidelity of their enterprise SOA governance models, structures and supporting automation mechanisms."

SOA Software and SAP
SAP customers can leverage SOA Software for seamless, heterogeneous automation of SOA Policy, Planning, Development and Operational Governance integration with their SAP NetWeaver Business Process Platform to ensure Integrated SOA Governance Automation fidelity and interoperability across disparate partners and platforms. SOA Software's products provide uniform lifecycle and policy governance across all existing platform investments with standards support for Governance automation and trust enablement and mediation.

SOA Software's products govern SAP Enterprise SOA solutions built using the NetWeaver products including Exchange Infrastructure (XI), Process Integration (PI), Composition Environment (CE), Enterprise Services Repository and Registry (ESR) and the SAP NetWeaver Application Server (WebAS).

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
SYS-CON Events announced today the Kubernetes and Google Container Engine Workshop, being held November 3, 2016, in conjunction with @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. This workshop led by Sebastian Scheele introduces participants to Kubernetes and Google Container Engine (GKE). Through a combination of instructor-led presentations, demonstrations, and hands-on labs, students learn the key concepts and practices for deploying and maintainin...
Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
Docker is sweeping across startups and enterprises alike, changing the way we build and ship applications. It's the most prominent and widely known software container platform, and it's particularly useful for eliminating common challenges when collaborating on code (like the "it works on my machine" phenomenon that most devs know all too well). With Docker, you can run and manage apps side-by-side - in isolated containers - resulting in better compute density. It's something that many developer...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Mike Johnston, an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io, will discuss how to use Kubernetes to setup a SaaS infrastructure for your business. Mike Johnston is an infrastructure engineer at Supergiant.io with over 12 years of experience designing, deploying, and maintaining server and workstation infrastructure at all scales. He has experience with brick and mortar data centers as well as cloud providers like Digital Ocean, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace....
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...
