TGO-1119 - Lab: SOA governance and runtime enforcement
Dean Phillips, IBM, Executive IT Architect
SOA governance and runtime enforcement focuses on the definition, management and execution of policies and business rules in the service lifecycle, while feeding data gathered at runtime back into the execution model as part of a continuous improvement process. This session will demonstrate how the IBM SOA Foundation products are used to: analyze registered versus deployed services, to minimize service development costs and ensure that production services have been approved through governance processes; dynamically control service endpoint selection, based on criteria such as service request content, performance, and service availability; and manage the security of services, regardless of who attempts to access them and where they reside in the enterprise.

TGO-1172 - Publishing and managing CICS service definitions Using IBM WebSphere Servic
Martin Cocks, IBM, Software Engineer
This session introduces the concepts and value of WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) for managing CICS® Web service definitions. The session begins with a brief overview of the goals of SOA and why SOA governance is vital in a successful Service Oriented Architecture. We will then look at how WSRR enables SOA governance and how it can be used to manage the service descriptions of CICS Web services. We will also look at how the recent CICS SupportPac CA1N can be used to publish WSDL that represents CICS Web service providers, extract WSDL that can be used by CICS Web service requesters and how meta-data can be associated with the WSDL documents to aid in classifying and searching for services.

TGO-1218 - IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository: Case studies
ROBERT R. PETERSON, IBM, Senior I/T Specialist
Learn how WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) was implemented at both a worldwide hotel chain and a European insurance firm. The first case study details the use of WSRR at runtime with ESB integration, dynamic-endpoint lookup, and service versioning. The second case study covers the use of WSRR from a design-time and development lifecycle perspective allowing for tracking, classification, and governance of services as they progress towards production.

TGO-1347 - IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository: Introduction
John McLean, IBM, Director, WebSphere SOA Registry Development
The IBM WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository (WSRR) product provides critical capabilities in the support of service oriented architecture (SOA). This session provides an overview of WSRR and possible integrations with other IBM SOA support products.
Level: Beginner

TGO-1351 - Policy management with the IBM WebSphere Registry and Repository
Duncan Clark, IBM, SOA Architect
Service oriented architecture (SOA) promises business agility through the use of loosely-coupled services whose interactions can be dynamically configured by policies. Although SOA can deliver this flexibility, it may be difficult to manage the service lifecycle effectively without a registry and some form of policy management. This session describes how the IBM WebSphere® Registry and Repository (WSRR) supports policy management for operational policy and governance policy/best practices. WSRR provides capabilities for authoring operational policies and attaching them to registered services. Presenters will describe how runtime components access the latest policies from WSRR and enforce them. Governance policies can be used to enforce best practices throughout the service lifecycle. WSRR provides service lifecycle governance capabilities such as policy driven validation, decision rights, and notification, which can also be used to govern the lifecycle of the operational policies.

John Colgrave, IBM, WSRR Architect, Matthew Golby-Kirk, IBM, WebSphere Message Broker Development, Gari Singh, IBM, Product Mgr, SOA Appliances, Chris Markes, IBM, Software Engineer
This session describes how the IBM WebSphere® Enterprise Service Bus, IBM WebSphere Message Broker and IBM WebSphere DataPower® integrate with the IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to enable runtime flexibility.
Level: Beginner

TGO-1358 - IBM WebSphere Service Registry and Repository and IBM Rational Asset Manage
John Colgrave, IBM, WSRR Architect, Gili Mendel, IBM, Senior Technical Stuff Member

TGO-1426 - SOA governance treatment
John Falkl, IBM, Chief Architect, SOA Governance, Franco Potepan, IBM, Executive ITS
After a company has established the overall SOA governance runtime environment, there is the ongoing requirement for SOA governance runtime enforcement. This session discusses the processes and tools for that enforcement. The treatment uses WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository, WebSphere DataPower® and Tivoli® Composite Application Manager for SOA to support managing services.

TGO-1482 - Demystifying SOA policy: Practical examples for enabling true SOA governance
John Falkl, IBM, Chief Architect, SOA Governance, Maryann Hondo , IBM, WebServices Security & Policy
Governance is a critical factor in deploying a successful service oriented architecture (SOA), and, with numerous runtime components  registries, the enterprise service bus, appliances, and so forth  and growing numbers of deployed services to manage, SOA policy governance, security, and management have emerged as critical enablers of SOA governance initiatives. This session will present case studies and best practices that illustrate the benefit of taking a proactive approach to governing and managing the business, architectural, and operational policies that affect SOA infrastructure, and how IBM delivers leading capabilities across its SOA offerings.

TGO-2030 - WebSphere Service Registry and Repository integrates with AmberPoint for an SOA runtime governance solution
Laura Olson, IBM, IBM Certified Consulting IT Specialist, Mark Calvert, IBM, Executive IT Architect
An SOA runtime governance solution typically consists of a registry, a broker and a management system. The session will demonstrate how IBM WebSphere® Service Registry and Repository, the registry, using standard integration techniques, integrates with AmberPoint, which provides a broker and management system, to provide a robust SOA runtime governance solution. Throughout this session, an example of this implementation performed at a large firm will be leveraged. Lastly, the session will discuss topics such as service lifecycles and the ability to customize and enforce the lifecycle, the implementation of contract management between a customer of a service and its provider, and policy creation, management, and enforcement.
Level: Intermediate

TGO-2455 - Real-time IT governance for SOA
Don Thomas, IBM, Market Offering Manager for SOA
Service oriented architecture (SOA) governance, IT governance in the context of SOA, puts key decisions within the lifecycle of service components, services, and business processes. It is the effective management of this lifecycle that is the fundamental goal of a SOA governance program: engendering and holding trust between all service consumers and providers in the entire SOA ecosystem. Many customers are starting their journey to SOA without proper governance controls to ensure success. Addressing unique SOA management considerations up-front can help you avoid significant business exposures. This session discusses severe governance issues, including rogue services, duplicated services, unsecured services, and how version control and change management can help you provide effective, real-time SOA governance.
