31 Oct 2011 Redwood Shores - Gartner Inc. has placed Oracle SOA Governance in the Leaders Quadrant of its 2011 report, "Magic Quadrant for SOA Governance Technologies". Gartner's Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to Gartner, "Service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance technologies, much like any other set of technologies, are striving to address needs beyond SOA to initiatives not having the SOA label, but are built according to a service-oriented model. Process governance, governing cloud interactions and interactions with business partners - e.g. integration brokerages - are part of the functionality set, or at least are on the radar for most technology providers."
By delivering an end-to-end SOA governance solution, Oracle SOA Governance 11g helps customers more efficiently and effectively manage the SOA lifecycle under a unified governance umbrella.
Oracle SOA Governance 11g is a key component of the Oracle Public Cloud. A component of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, Oracle SOA Governance 11g consists of Oracle Enterprise Repository, Oracle Enterprise Gateway, Oracle Web Services Manager, SOA Management Pack Enterprise Edition and Oracle Service Registry.
"Organisations are increasingly trying to eliminate the complex and expensive processes associated with managing numerous software artifacts in SOA, application integration projects and cloud environments", stated Michael Weingartner, vice president, product development, Oracle. We believe that Oracle's position as a leader in this Gartner SOA Governance Magic Quadrant is recognition of our commitment to providing an end-to-end solution that helps customers reduce risk, maintain business alignment and show the business value of SOA and Cloud investments."
