LogicLibrary and AgilePath Collaborate on SOA Playbook

LogicLibrary and AgilePath announced on Monday that the two companies will incorporate AgilePath’s SOA Playbook methodology into Logidex’s metadata repository. The combined offering is intended to be an out-of-the-box solution for service identification and modeling combined with SOA governance and enablement.

Logidex’s metadata repository for SDAs enables enterprises to govern the production process for reusable components, Web services and other assets. AgilePath's SOA Playbook is a process for identifying, prioritizing and modeling business services. Integrating AgilePath's SOA Playbook with Logidex enables developers and architects to implement SOA faster, and ensures that the new applications and software assets will work within enterprise architectures and frameworks, the two companies claim.

Integrating AgilePath's SOA Playbook with Logidex makes for a solution that brings top-down and bottom-up processes together, using Logidex's Graphical Reference Model and Smart Controls, the companies say. This combined methodology features a top-down approach including service identification and modeling that results in the creation of a reference model or service map that accurately depicts critical business services, along with a bottom-up approach focusing on automating appropriate SOA governance and design-time policy enforcement over the targeted services.

LogicLibrary makes it possible for organizations to govern the entire production process throughout the software development lifecycle. This helps customers maintain control of enterprise development assets, improve time to market and maximize technology investments, according to LogicLibrary.
