IBM readies updated 'governance' services
The services and software detailed on Tuesday focus specifically on "governance," the idea of establishing defined practices for IT organizations that are building and deploying applications with a revamped underlying architecture in mind. The SOA governance products, which build on existing SOA-related consulting and software offerings, add a business consulting service to plan SOA projects and "help with the necessary cultural changes," according to the company. IBM will also release later this year a new product called IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, a database for storing and managing services.
