The Logimethods Governance Framework helps jump start your integration or SOA governance initiative. The challenge for all types of distributed solution, including enterprise integration, BPM and SOA, is that components of the solution can belong to different organizational units. This can lead to dicey issues when changes or required. Who is responsible for making the change? Who pays for the change? Who is responsible monitoring and reporting on the overall end-to-end solution?
- One of the most touted benefits of both enterprise integration and SOA is reusing existing IT assets to deliver new business solutions faster, cheaper, and with less risk. Governance is essential to monitoring and managing reuse of enterprise assets. However, many organizations put off implementing governance because they view it as burdensome overhead. The key is to define governance processes to ensure success without increasing overhead costs or impeding growth and innovation. We call it just enough governance.
- The Logimethods Governance Framework contains processes and templates to fast track your governance initiative. Based on the Open Group Governance model and open standards, it provides a cookbook approach for defining roles & responsibilities, processes, policies, metrics and best practices for each phase of the solution life cycle. Templates are provided to quickly identify the key governance activities required for each stage of the lifecycle.
