LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 9, 2009) - SOA Software today announced a new product to extend the capabilities of the IBM WebSphere Service Registry Repository (WSRR). This new product called Policy Manager for IBM WSRR complements the policy management capabilities of WSRR enabling customers to define policies for services and service consumers regardless of their platform and can audit the policies implemented and enforced by the platform in a closed-loop process.

"SOA Software's Policy Manager for IBM WSRR will complement our strong policy management capabilities helping our customers gain control of enterprise services and associated policies built with and running on any heterogeneous platforms," said Dr. Angel Luis Diaz, Vice President, Product Management of Business Process Management and Connectivity at IBM Corporation. "By combining this solution with IBM's comprehensive service visibility and governance solutions, customers are better able to broadly, flexibly and continuously automate and govern their business processes. Especially in today's economic and hyper-competitive environment, this optimizes productivity and resources needed to achieve business agility."

Policy Manager™ for IBM WSRR provides comprehensive SOA Governance tools for all the different roles in the organization including service developer, consumer developer, architect, business stakeholder, IT operations, security operations, and more. It uses a role-based security model for authorization of policy-driven SOA Governance process control such as service publishing and provisioning process approvals, and to protect sensitive information.

Policy Manager™ for IBM WSRR provides consistent governance by extending WSRR control to heterogeneous non-IBM environments. It provides:

--  SOA Policy Federation for WSRR
--  Publication of WSRR managed policies via WS-Metadata Exchange and WS-
    Resource Transfer
--  Active contract management to manage relationships between consumers
    and providers
--  The collection, processing and distribution of monitoring data
--  Closed-loop policy definition, implementation, enforcement and
    auditing for WSRR services

Policy Manager can be deployed stand-alone providing powerful SOA Governance. It integrates seamlessly with SOA Software's Repository Manager™ for comprehensive metadata management and development governance, and can also be deployed with SOA Software's Service Manager™, or any other standards-based SOA Operational Governance Automation solution. It defines, monitors, and manages Active Contracts™ between consumers and providers.
