An important component of SOA is the ability to show true business value and efficiency. Therefore it is critical that the IT organization gains visibility and control over all project assets in the enterprise, including design artifacts and services. A unified approach to SOA governance also ensures compliance with architectural standards, maximum reuse and accurate decision-making

This course trains SOA architects and project managers on the use of Oracle Governance products, including Oracle Enterprise Repository and Oracle Service Registry.
