[WSO2Con US 2013] Re-Thinking Enterprise SOA & IT Governance
By WSO2Con2013 USA
- 29 Sep, 2013
Enterprise SOA is a design pattern where you build re-usable functions or activities as a set of self-contained, loosely-coupled services. IT governance focuses on direction and control of operations, by granting people rights and responsibilities over processes, while conforming to a series of policies.
SOA governance has been in existence for over five years; however, most enterprises have not reaped all its benefits. Complexity of requirements, diversity of tools, and implementation costs are examples of several roadblocks faced. In this session, Senaka will discuss these challenges and highlight WSO2’s strategy in re-thinking how enterprise SOA and IT governance tie-up together.
Senaka focuses on the WSO2 Governance Registry and WSO2 Cloud Services Gateway. In addition to his product development efforts, he has provided technology consulting on customer engagements, helping to successfully implement governance, enterprise application integration, SAP integration, and on-premise portal solutions. He also founded the WSO2 Web Services Framework/C++ during his internship with WSO2 in 2008.
He is an elected member of the Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and also a Project Management Committee (PMC) member and committer for a number of projects, which currently include Apache Web Services, Axis2, and several Apache incubator projects. He is also a member of the OASIS S-RAMP, WEMI, and TOSCA technical committees. As a participant of the Google Summer of Code for both 2008 and 2009, he worked on the Apache Harmony and Ptolemy II projects at the University of California, Berkeley.
