Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) hold tremendous promise for reduced costs and increased agility for organizations. And API management promises to increase revenue thru new channels. But how you implement SOA and API Management will determine whether or not you achieve your goals.
Struggling with heavyweight, complex, and expensive proprietary SOA platforms can quickly sap any potential ROI gains. In addition to choosing the right SOA platform, it’s also critical to have a plan in place for SOA Governance in order to reach your ROI goals. In this webinar, we will describe how some of the world’s largest companies are benefiting from effectively planning, building and operating their SOA and API environments. We’ll detail how automated SOA governance and API management helps enterprises more effectively leverage SOA and APIs to increase business output while slashing their spending.
Join us to gain insight into:
- The “agile” approach to end-to-end SOA governance, policy compliance, and control
- Best practices for design, launch and test of SOA Governance, SOA Management and SOA Security
- How to ensure end-to-end SLA, security, and policy compliance
- How APIs and SOA are 2 sides of the same coin
