HP is shipping HP SOA Systinet 3.00, an upgrade to its foundation SOA Governance product to boost SOA returns by offering improved visibility and integration between SOA design time and runtime, boost automation and expanding support for SOA and BPM.

"We've found our Systinet SOA Governance customers can get faster and better results from their SOA projects and take better advantage of SOA's iterative approach to design, test, deploy and update across the whole SOA lifecycle," Kelly Emo, HP Software's SOA Product Marketing Manager told IDN.

"With Systinet 3.00, we're building on this in several ways we think can bring efficiencies to IT and business with more automation, better visibility into what's going on in repositories and active services and a whole lot of features that just take the head-scratching out of SOA and SOA Governance," Emo added.

Systinet 3.00 also extends better integration between design time and runtime phases, Emo added. "The whole integration between what is being planned and what is actually deployed is so critical to rapid provisioning of new services and their success for customers. Systinet's last release [Systinet 2.5.2] offered customers what we call an 'automated loading dock' that uses automation and templates to speed the launch of new services. We push that capability further with Systinet 3.00," she told IDN.

HP SOA Systinet 3.00's Top Features include:

  • Best-practices-driven automation: Customers can automate service life cycle policy compliance through capturing best practices to make it easier to achieve their SOA objectives. New, pre-built life cycles and templates help bring non-experts up to speed quickly. More sophisticated users can customize service life cycles to meet the needs of the business using wizard-driven, graphical and application programming interfaces. Role-based visual dashboards give users the information they need in a format that relates to their responsibilities.
    "This lets customers set up an automated test and workflow operation for launching SOA services, while giving go/no-go voting rights to various IT staff," Emo said.
  • Integration with existing processes: HP SOA Systinet helps drive effective decision making across the service life cycle. The software can trigger business policies based on service quality through integration with HP Service Test Management or prompt actions to manage rogue services in production through integration with the HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB).
    "Customers are telling us that using UDDI to exchange CMDB and Systinet is becoming a bigger deal because it makes it easier to configure their own service categorization for wider sharing and reuse," Emo said. This is especially true for companies who want to tie in packaged applications into a governable SOA environment, without using the sometimes-arcane naming conventions some ISVs use, she added.
  • Governance of business processes: Customers can create reusable business processes and include them in the governance framework using new support for industry-standard Business Process Execution Language. Organizations can increase productivity in their business process management initiatives with business processes that are easier to discover and reuse.

  • Automation for scale: Organizations can automate repetitive tasks across a large number of services with new support for bulk operations and life cycle cloning, capabilities that simplify the implementation of major changes. They can ensure investment protection in chosen standards with new support for Open CSA (previously SCA) and WSDL 2.0.
