Portfolio Manager allows us to offer a comprehensive SOA Governance automation solution that spans all stages of the enterprise service lifecycle from identification and analysis, through the design, development and testing phases, into production, versioning and deprecation.

To help ensure the success of their SOA Programs, and ultimately their business, large enterprises need to make sure that they build the right services, build them the right way, and ensure that they are behaving right. SOA Software's Governance products implement a single state-machine and share a common meta-model to provide a seamless governance process ensuring the fidelity of governance models, structures and processes across the entire enterprise lifecycle.
