Description
Bottom rule

An SOA is the next evolutionary step to help IT organizations meet their ever more-complex challenges. SOA has the potential to drive business flexibility, performance, and innovation by better aligning your information technologies to your business objectives. Maximizing this potential depends on how well you govern the services in your SOA throughout the life cycle.

Store, access, and manage information to support a successful SOA. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository V7.0 delivers management and governance capabilities that allow you to get the most business value from your SOA. It facilitates storing, accessing, and managing service information, called service metadata, to easily select, invoke, govern, and reuse your services. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has tight integration with IBM SOA Foundation, an integrated, open standards-based set of software, best practices, and patterns for SOA.

Publish, find, enrich, manage, and govern

Encourage reuse The publish and find capabilities of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository promote service reuse in SOA projects by allowing greater visibility of and easier access to existing services. The service discovery engine discovers services on WebSphere Application Server and other Application Server platforms, WebSphere Process Server, WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus, and Microsoft®.NET platforms, allowing you to keep an accurate record of deployed services in your SOA. Faceted search offers a natural and user-friendly way to find services by allowing you to progressively refine search results using attributes, document types, or classification.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository helps in quickly creating or modifying business processes using existing services. A powerful query mechanism allows you to search and find the services that best fit the requirements of a given process.

Enhance connectivity The enrich capability enables dynamic and efficient access to services information by both runtime applications and processes that facilitate better connectivity and efficiency. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository increases runtime flexibility of applications by an enterprise service bus (ESB) by enabling selection of services based on service metadata.

Optimize service usage The manage capability enables management of service metadata, as well as service interactions, dependencies, and redundancies. You can classify services based on business objectives, manage policies for service usage, and monitor how services are changed and versioned. Also, you can link related documents (such as PDF files) to service metadata. This capability helps you optimize the use of services in an SOA by exchanging rich service metadata with runtime monitoring tools and operational data stores.

Enable SOA governance

Enables SOA governance in the service life cycle by providing:

  • Access control Control the visibility and access to service metadata for sharing and reuse by using role-based access. Using the access-control editor, you can easily set up access-control rules that align with your business.
  • Classify service Classifying services and related metadata into groups that are meaningful in the domain of your organization and that align with your business needs. Using the classification editor, productivity can be improved by easy set-up and modifications to your classification schemas.
  • Impact analysis By maintaining relationships, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has extensive support for analyzing the impact of service introduction, deletion, or alteration. Graphical views allow you to intuitively understand the service relationships and dependencies.
  • Service life cycle By creating user-definable entities and customizing the service life cycle, you can configure WebSphere Service Registry and Repository precisely according to your business needs. You can implement best practices for service lifecycle management with the ability to promote services and lifecycle validations. Using customizable validators, you can guard transitions in the lifecycle states of services.
  • Governance profile To get you started easily and quickly, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository has a well-defined service model that includes templates, associated life cycles, governance policies with a generic validator, a classification system, roles, and perspectives.

SOA policy management

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables policy management across the life cycle spanning all domains of policy. Better policy management with WebSphere Service Registry and Repository lets you track and govern your run-time policies while establishing contractual and enforceable relationships between various run-time policies and associated services. It allows you to consistently enforce the most current policies in your SOA. These policies are discovered and interpreted dynamically during run time. By helping to ensure that your contractual obligations are strictly followed, you will benefit by mitigating the risk of lost revenue and customer dissatisfaction, and achieving higher levels of service quality and responsiveness.

  • Govern the life cycle of SOA policies
    • Validate, audit, and report changes to policy
    • Ensure Web services interoperability (WS-I) compliance
    • Enforce service governance policies
  • Use policy authoring tools to easily create new policies
    • Associate policies to services to create an authoritative source of services and related metadata
    • Store and associate policies of any domain
  • Apply prescriptive approach to governance with new policy libraries improving time-to-value
    • Templates for operational policies
    • Policies that capture governance best practices
  • Distribute SOA policies to enable enforcement by ESBs and other SOA products

Federate with other SOA repositories:WebSphere Service Registry and Repository federates with other SOA repositories to enable governance and management of the complete service life cycle. At the model and assemble phases, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository is complemented by repositories that specialize in managing SOA development artifacts.

In the deploy and manage phases, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can work with a configuration management databases to acquire and manage operational details of your IT infrastructure. Integration with IBM Tivoli Change and Configuration Management Database (CCMDB) provides governance and impact analysis capabilities across services and the underlying infrastructure.

Synchronization with Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) registries allows entries created via a UDDI V3-capable product to be synchronized with entries in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. Web Services Description Language document entries (that have been created in UDDI following Best Practice: "Using Web Services Description Language in a UDDI Registry" or Technical Note: "Using Web Services Description Language in a UDDI Registry, V2.0.2") can be mapped, created, and maintained including their metadata. Policy documents stored in UDDI can also be mapped in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. The support is bidirectional, meaning that documents created in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can be mapped into UDDI and vice versa.

Enable governance and lifecycle management of high-value applications:WebSphere Service Registry and Repository helps your high-value applications to participate fully in enterprise SOA. Service enabled applications from WebSphere MQ and CICS can be published in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enabling you to reuse, classify, describe, and govern these services like any other service in your SOA.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository can be a critical deployment component of SOA projects because it enables you to:

  • Get clear visibility into service associations and relationships. Better align IT to meet business needs by outlining business tasks and the corresponding IT services. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository supports service lifecycle management and governance to provide better control of SOA environment.
  • Share your services. You can identify common services to avoid duplication and foster reuse. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository supports discovery and reuse of services and the associated metadata and artifacts.
  • Deliver services interoperability. Make the most of existing investments and infrastructure. With the support of Web Services Description Language, XML, XML Schema Definition (XSD) Language, Service Component Architecture (SCA), and other standards including UDDI, WebSphere Service Registry and Repository delivers true interoperability.
  • Provide SOA governance. SOA governance is a catalyst for optimized SOA deployments in meeting the IT and business objectives. Your SOA can be more tightly aligned to business objectives because it is organized by business-oriented services and if needed, also by IT function. Better governance of an SOA means better business results.
  • Unlock the value of mainframe applications and databases. Mainframe applications and database interactions that are exposed as services can be published to WebSphere Service Registry and Repository and accessed by both mainframe and non-mainframe applications without invasive programming at the API level.
  • Enforce best practices.WebSphere Service Registry and Repository includes functions and flexibility to help IT groups institute standards and best practices in their SOA deployments.
  • Incrementally adopt SOA. The scalable nature of WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables you to start your SOA small and grow as needed. You can incrementally deploy SOA alongside existing assets and processes.

Playing a vital role in IBM SOA Foundation

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository plays a major role in the SOA life cycle.

  • Model. During service modelling, you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to create or reuse service descriptions, classifications, and XML schemas. It also interacts with the service development life cycle with standard asset management solutions
  • Assemble. During service development or assembly, you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to locate services for reuse and to enable service composition, such as creating new composite applications. Because the life cycle of services is managed and governed in WebSphere Service Registry and Repository, it forms the authoritative source of service metadata.
  • Deploy. As part of the service deployment process, you can publish service endpoint information WebSphere Service Registry and Repository. It augments any service descriptions that already exist from development or other tools, which helps by enriching the service interaction from run times.
  • Manage. To manage services that leverage system-management practices (such as Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL®) processes, and Change and Configuration Management Database (CCMDB) for storing information about service interactions such as mediations), you can use WebSphere Service Registry and Repository to capture and assess the performance of services against business and operational performance objectives. WebSphere Service Registry and Repository federates service information with operational systems management utilities.

WebSphere Service Registry and Repository enables Service Governance needs of an enterprise. Its robust, industrial-strength capabilities help you efficiently manage access to, and governance of, services. Standard registry and repository functions for the entire software life cycle, well integrated with IBM SOA Foundation and other complementary third-party software solutions, make WebSphere Service Registry and Repository a valuable component of your SOA.

Processor Value Unit (PVU)

Processor Value Unit (PVU) is a unit of measure by which this software product can be licensed. PVU entitlements are based on processor technology (defined within the PVU table* by processor vendor, brand, type and model number). IBM continues to define a processor, for purposes of PVU-based licensing, to be each processor core on a chip. Each software product has a unique price per PVU. To determine the total cost of deploying an individual software product in a specific hardware environment, you must take the following steps:

  1. For each processor core in the hardware environment on which the software product is to be licensed, determine the PVU requirement based on its processor technology per the PVU table*.
  2. Add the PVU requirements for all processor cores in the hardware environment.
  3. Multiply the software product's price per PVU by the total number of PVUs required as determined in step 2 above.

PVU entitlements are specific to a software product and may not be exchanged, interchanged, or aggregated with PVU entitlements of another software product.

Unless you have deployed eligible sub-capacity products according to the sub-capacity* terms, you must obtain PVU Proof of Entitlements (PoEs) for the maximum number of activated** physical processor cores in the hardware environment made available to or managed by the software product. This is also referred to as full capacity licensing.

(**) Activated processor cores are physical processor cores that are available for use in a server. They include processor cores:

  • That are activated (available for use) when the server is shipped by the manufacturer
  • That are activated subsequently through activation codes purchased from the server manufacturer by the customer
  • Whose capacity can be limited by the customer through Virtualization technologies, Operating System commands and BIOS settings.

IBM Electronic Services
Bottom rule

IBM has transformed its delivery of hardware and software support services to help you achieve higher system availability. Electronic Services is a Web-enabled solution that offers an exclusive, no-additional-charge enhancement to the service and support available for IBM servers. These services are designed to provide the opportunity for greater system availability with faster problem resolution and preemptive monitoring. Electronic Services comprises two separate, but complementary, elements: Electronic Services news page and Electronic Services Agent.

The Electronic Services news page is a single Internet entry point that replaces the multiple entry points traditionally used to access IBM Internet services and support. The news page enables you to gain easier access to IBM resources for assistance in resolving technical problems.

The Electronic Service Agent™ is no-additional-charge software that resides on your server. It monitors events and transmits system inventory information to IBM on a periodic, client-defined timetable. The Electronic Service Agent automatically reports hardware problems to IBM. Early knowledge about potential problems enables IBM to deliver proactive service that may result in higher system availability and performance. In addition, information collected through the Service Agent is made available to IBM service support representatives when they help answer your questions or diagnose problems. Installation and use of IBM Electronic Service Agent for problem reporting enables IBM to provide better support and service for your IBM server.
