Software AG, a global leader in business infrastructure software, announced the immediate availability of the CentraSite Governance Edition as a comprehensive, standards-based solution for managing and governing the services, processes, policies and business rules associated with service-oriented architecture (SOA). Building upon the industry-leading webMethods Infravio X-Registry, the CentraSite Governance Edition lowers the threshold to successful SOA adoption by helping enterprises more easily and quickly define their governance model, extend unified service governance across the enterprise, and enforce consistent standards for usage. Specific features include new automated governance processes and policy enforcement embedded directly into the platform; a richer, more extensible metadata repository; a more intuitive, Web 2.0 user interface; and the inclusion of prepackaged best practices and wizard-driven templates for guiding lifecycle management of all SOA assets.

When managed appropriately, SOA improves business agility while reducing operational costs by enabling the structured reuse of existing IT assets within new, business-driven applications and processes. What has prevented many enterprises from fully capitalizing on these opportunities are the challenges associated with managing the underlying complexities and interdependencies inherent in this more granular approach to application development. By institutionalizing these processes via an automated approach to lifecycle governance, enterprises can implement best practices from day one, which lowers long-term costs while delivering more immediate benefits and faster adoption.
