  • Publication number: 20100250320
    Abstract: Methods, including service methods, articles of manufacture, systems, articles and programmable devices are provided for creating and using shared services through service-oriented architecture governance and a services lifecycle process. Service lifecycle steps are identified within a service-oriented architecture shared services model. Service stakeholders, decision-making touch-points and service state transition touch-points are identified in the shared services model, and service state-based lifecycle governance checkpoints within the shared services model are defined as a function of the identified service lifecycle steps, service stakeholders, decision-making touch-points and state transition touch-points.

  • Publication number: 20100250298
    Abstract: Methods, including service methods, articles of manufacture, systems, articles and programmable devices provide a service-oriented architecture prioritization enablement framework. Business objectives and principles indicative of a service-oriented architecture enterprise are defined and categorized with respect to a plurality of business objectives and principles categories, and groupings of individual measurable business goals are categorized with respect to the categories. Total weight values are determined for each business goal as a product of an individual weighting values and base weightings of the categories. The business goal total weight values are iteratively applied priority values of a service of the service-oriented architecture associated with each business goal to generate a weighted priority values, which are aggregated to produce an aggregated priority weighting value for the service used for service prioritization.

  • Publication number: 20100251327
    Abstract: Methods, including service methods, articles of manufacture, systems, articles and programmable devices provide a policy engine framework. A consumer policy request for a web service is mediated through a functional web service or a policy web service. A single unified method call is made to policy adapters in response to the mediated customer request, each of the policy adapters in communication with a policy server. The policy adapters transform the single unified method call into formats acceptable by each associated policy servers and place the transformed requests to the associated servers. Results from the policy servers are formatted by policy adapters and a policy is selected from a policy registry repository as a function of the formatted results and returned to a requesting consumer.

  • Publication number: 20100250293
    Abstract: Methods, including service methods, articles of manufacture, systems, articles and programmable devices are provided for controlling versioning of a service. A programmable policy broker is configured to communicate with a service registry and a policy repository comprising different service levels of a service. A location lookup is centralized in the service registry for different versions of the service. A call for a service by a consumer is mediated by causing the policy broker to select and return a correct service level from the policy repository as a function of a requirement of the consumer, look up a proper version of the service in the service registry from the different versions as a function of the returned correct service level, and call the looked-up proper service from a location associated with the proper service in the service registry.
