Systinet Registry 5.5 Supports SOA Governance and Lifecycle Management
Systinet Unveils First Business Services Registry for SOA
Latest Version of Proven Systinet Registry Provides the Standards-Based Foundation for SOA Governance and Lifecycle Management
Cambridge, MA, USA. November 15, 2004.
Systinet, the provider of the leading foundation for SOA governance and lifecycle management, today announced the release of Systinet Registry 5.5, the industry's most complete and proven Business Services Registry. The Business Services Registry is the centerpiece of Systinet's foundation for governance and lifecycle management within a service-oriented architecture (SOA).
The Business Services Registry provides Systinet's customers a simpler, faster, and easier way to establish control of an SOA. This is especially crucial during the transition from point-to-point Web services to re-usable business services. Systinet Registry creates the system of record for all information about business services in the SOA; provides lifecycle functions to enable, publish, discover, and manage business services; allows for on-demand re-use of business services; and acts as the guide in mapping business processes to SOA.
"There's tremendous power for SOA governance if you store process, policy, SLAs, and related information about services in a registry," said Frank Kenney, research analyst at Gartner. "Gartner believes that registries will be essential to minimally discover and document services and preferably to enable the governance function."
Systinet Registry 5.5 extends beyond full v3 UDDI compliance to include federation, security, data validation and lifecycle services for change management and notification and quality of service management. It supports any Web services enablement or management platform and works with traditional message oriented middleware (MOM), enterprise application integration (EAI) or enterprise service bus (ESB). With Systinet Registry, businesses are able to manage complete SOA business service lifecycles across disparate, heterogeneous environments. The new Business Service Registry builds on the company's already proven versions currently in use at Motorola, Level 3, and the U.S. Department of Defense.
"SOA requires a business services registry for governance, visibility and to promote service re-use," said Dennis Nadler, CTO, Merlin Technical Solutions. "Systinet offers the industry's leading standards-based registry, and we've had great success partnering and working together on a number of large-scale SOA projects for various government agencies."
New features in the Systinet Registry include:
A configurable business service console that provides a simple, easy to understand user experience through the use of intuitive search and navigation tools, UI controls and portal integration features.
Advanced classification management that makes business service views highly usable, configurable, and maintainable.
SOA information mapping and publishing wizards that allow for the storing and re-use of business service policy and governance information using XML-based data standards such as XML Schema, XSLT, and WSDL.
"The use of Web services in the enterprise has evolved from simple application integration to the point where organizations are seeking services that provide business interoperability," said Thomas Erickson, CEO at Systinet. "In order to make the discovery and governance of these business services a repeatable, agile process, you need a foundation in place that is both open and standards-based. That is the heart of the Systinet Registry's value."
