AgilePath Announces New SOA Governance Consulting Solutions

SOA Governance, Policy Development, and Organizational Optimization Drive SOA Success

NEWBURYPORT, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 27, 2005 -- AgilePath Corporation, a leading SOA management and technology consulting firm, today announced a new suite of SOA governance consulting solutions to address the needs of organizations grappling with their SOA governance requirements. SOA Governance has emerged as a critical aspect of successful SOA adoption along with focusing on the social architecture of SOA, including organizational, cultural and behavioral issues.

"SOA governance can make or break an SOA initiative," stated Eric A. Marks, President and CEO of AgilePath Corporation. "Many organizations now realize that SOA success derives not only from good planning, enabling value-added services, and implementing appropriate technology, but from having a well-defined SOA governance model, clear and enforceable SOA policies, and a process for managing SOA processes and behavior over time. Getting the SOA technology right is not sufficient without proper SOA Governance."

AgilePath's SOA Governance solutions include two tracks of services: SOA Governance Services and Organizational Dynamics Services. SOA Governance Services include governance assessments, governance model and policy development, and implementing various SOA governance technology solutions such as policy-driven governance platforms, service registries, Web services Management and metadata management solutions.

AgilePath's SOA Organizational Dynamics Services include SOA Organizational Effectiveness Solutions for change management and behavioral reinforcement, Architecture Process and Organizational Modeling to tune an organization's overall architecture capabilities, and SOA Development Process and Tool Optimization to integrate development tools and processes into a coherent service-oriented development process. The Organizational Dynamics Services focus on the organizational, procedural, behavioral and skills issues that comprise the behavioral fabric of successful SOA initiatives.

"SOA governance is critical for all organizations beginning their SOA initiatives, and as with many aspects of SOA, governance can be implemented and supported using a variety of technology solutions once the SOA governance model and specific policies have been developed," states Marks. "AgilePath's SOA governance solutions will help each organization determine the optimal SOA governance model and policies to meet their defined SOA goals."

AgilePath's SOA governance solutions complement its current suite of SOA-specific solutions and services including its patent-pending SOA Playbook™ methodology, its Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) practice, its SOA technology solutions, its Services Realization Process, and AgilePath's executive briefing solutions. AgilePath will continue developing new solutions as it identifies unmet SOA requirements in the field, again reinforcing its innovation and thought leadership in the SOA space.
