Leading service-oriented architecture (SOA) vendors joined forces in announcing their commitment and mutual support for SOA Link, an end-to-end SOA Governance Interoperability Initiative.

SOA Link is an initiative organized by Infravio, Inc. for the purpose of bringing together multiple vendors with products for SOA governance to mutually interoperate. Whether supplying a policy repository and authoring system, run time enforcement system, monitoring at runtime, or business process capability, these systems will be delivered as interoperable by multiple vendors and technologies.

Fifteen founding members of SOA Link include AmberPoint, Composite Software, Forum Systems, Infravio, Intalio, IONA, JBoss, Layer 7 Technologies, LogicBlaze, NetIQ, ParaSoft, Reactivity, SOA Software, SymphonySoft and webMethods.

Participants benefit by having the ability to publish services and associated policy to a system of record in a standardized way, and to be alerted to changes when they happen. Essentially, governance interoperability fosters the creation of a complete solution for SOA governance and control.

SOA Link does not mandate a single API for interoperability. On the contrary, it is a public statement by partnered vendors that they will provide interoperable solutions to their customers. A customer buying SOA Link solutions can be assured that these products will work together to solve the problem of end-to-end SOA lifecycle governance.
