    • Automatic, Closed Loop Artifact Harvesting throughout the SOA Lifecycle: Automated artifact harvesting at each stage of the lifecycle reduces risks associated with making decisions based on stale data by providing enhanced visibility into SOA dependencies.
    • Registry Repository support for Oracle SOA Suite11g, Oracle Service Bus and Oracle Business Process Analysis (BPA) Suite: Reduces tooling complexity and makes software delivery more efficient by enabling organizations to rely on a single vendor for all SOA governance and lifecycle management needs.
