AgilePath Announces New SOA Governance Playbook™ Solution

Bundled Solution Includes SOA Governance Templates, Consulting Services and Ongoing Mentoring and Change Management

NEWBURYPORT, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 26, 2006 -- AgilePath Corporation, a leading SOA consulting firm, today announced the release of its Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) Governance Playbook™ Solution. Building on AgilePath's patent-pending SOA Playbook™ methodology and AgilePath's SOA Governance Reference Model, AgilePath's SOA Governance Playbook™ solution consists of a packaged SOA Governance Model methodology supported by governance and process templates, consulting services and ongoing mentoring and change management to help end users quickly implement SOA governance in support of their SOA strategies.

"SOA Governance is essential for SOA success," stated Eric A. Marks, President and CEO of AgilePath Corporation. "The market response to our SOA Governance Reference Model™ and its supporting methodology has been tremendous," Marks continued, "and we therefore have packaged these tools into the SOA Governance Playbook™ and will offer it as a bundled SOA governance solution to end user clients and strategic partners."

"SOA governance is more than tooling -- it cannot be reduced to a software tool or a vendor product suite -- but it is supported by appropriate tooling," said Marks. "SOA governance is all about organizations, processes and enforcing policies to achieve a consistent behavioral model. Our SOA Governance Playbook™ solution appropriately frames SOA governance in this context while providing a model for identifying the appropriate SOA governance tools and policy enforcement solutions."

As a companion solution with AgilePath's acclaimed and patent-pending SOA Playbook™ methodology, AgilePath's SOA Governance Playbook™ solution will help organizations realize their business and SOA strategies through robust governance, policy enforcement and attention to organizational, process and behavioral factors. Many of these SOA governance concepts are developed in Marks's new book "Service-Oriented Architecture: A Planning and Implementation Guide for Business and Technology" (Marks and Bell, 2006), which was released in April by Wiley & Sons.
