  • Patent number: 10152692
    Abstract: Methods and systems for governing service identification in an SOA governance model according to embodiments of the present invention are provided. Embodiments include receiving a set of input parameters for identifying candidate services for the SOA; determining whether the set of input parameters comply with a predetermined input parameter validation policy. If the set of input parameters comply with a predetermined input parameter validation policy, governing service identification includes identifying in dependence upon the set of input parameters one or more candidate services available for the SOA in existing SOA business applications and determining whether each candidate services available in existing SOA business applications comply with a predetermined service selection policy.

  • Patent number: 8660885
    Abstract: Defining service ownership for an SOA includes defining, in response to an event requiring a change in service ownership and in dependence upon data describing business functions within a business, a service domain. Embodiments also include reviewing the defined service domain for approval and upon approval of the defined service domain, identifying potential impact upon currently existing service domains caused by implementation of the defined service domain. Embodiments also include identifying a potential owner of the defined service domain in dependence upon a service type of the defined service domain and funding requirements of the service domain and presenting, to relevant stakeholders in the business, the potential owner of the defined service domain for approval. Upon approval of the potential owner of the defined service domain, embodiments include assigning the potential owner of the defined service domain responsibility for managing the defined service domain.

  • Publication number: 20100138252
    Abstract: Governing realizing services in a Service Oriented Architecture (‘SOA’) including receiving a preliminary service model and a preliminary SOA service architecture; allocating services in the preliminary service model (704) to service components; allocating service components to service layers in the preliminary SOA service architecture;if the service components and the services allocated to the service components are technically feasible in the layers of the preliminary SOA architecture to which they are allocated, updating the service model; if the updated service model meets predetermined SOA compliance requirements, communicating the SOA compliant updated service model to relevant stakeholders in the SOA.

  • Publication number: 20100138251
    Abstract: Governing the design of services in an SOA including creating a high level service design from the service model; if the high level service design and the estimated cost of the SOA complies with predetermined service design verification policies, creating a low level service design from the high level service design; and if the low level service design and the estimated updated cost of the SOA complies with predetermined low-level service design verification policies, incorporating the low level service design in a design specification for the SOA.
