Jack van Hoof reviews Todd Biske's SOA Governance Book

Since I'm a regular reader of both Jack van Hoof's and Todd Biske's blogs, I thought it was cool that Jack van Hoof reviewed Todd Biske's SOA Governance book

Here's a snippet from the review:

Todd approaches SOA governance from the perspective of people, policies and processes to establish and maintain desired behavior in order to succeed in an IT-oriented SOA. Aptly illustrated around a fictive case of the enterprise architecture team of Advasco, a leading financial conglomerate, he teaches his readers the aspects of avoiding a BoS (Bunch of Services), controlling life cycles and versioning, governing design-time and run-time, establishing SOA governance at your organization (I think the hardest challenge of all), and celebrating success to help in changing behavior.

  1. cool, I'll check it out!Some thing SOA Governance is a way to make a stupid management buzzword even more boring, but afer trying to implement an SOA without good governance, I can tell you that there's a lot of value there.
