Looks like my previous posting on this topic was pretty timely. Joe McKendrick (over at ZDNet) just today talked about SOA governance stifling agility.
In Joe's article, he asked the question of whether or not we need a new name for SOA Governance (and that he's always thought that SOA Management fit the bill). If we wanted to give "SOA Governance" a marketing makeover, here's a few slogans SOA Governance advocates might use:
OK, so maybe it's hard to come up with catchy slogans for SOA Governance. None of this solves the real problem with SOA Governance: SOA governance is often implemented as too much stick and not enough carrot. Too much of a barrier and not enough of an enabler. Too many policies with too little measurable value. Unless these issues are addressed, no amount of marketing, magic quadrants, or vendor testimonials are going to make SOA Governance successful in most organizations.
