Governance Registry

WSO2 Governance Registry

Governance encompasses more than just technology; governance also includes people and processes. The WSO2 Governance Registry provides the right level of structure straight out of the box to support SOA Governance, configuration governance, development process governance, design and run-time governance, lifecycle management, and team collaboration.

Today you may have ad-hoc processes and use shared spreadsheets to register enterprise services, which is a good start. The WSO2 Governance Registry helps you move to the next level and fully understand the state and scope of your SOA portfolio by communicating and managing the lifecycle of your services, and by identifying and highlighting the dependencies between services and consumers.
