Oracle Named a Leader in SOA Governance Magic Quadrant by Leading Analyst Firm

Redwood Shores, Calif. – October 31, 2011

News Facts

Gartner, Inc. has placed Oracle SOA Governance in the Leaders Quadrant of its 2011 report, “Magic Quadrant for SOA Governance Technologies.” (1)
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reports position vendors within a particular quadrant based on their completeness of vision and ability to execute.
According to Gartner, “Service-oriented architecture (SOA) governance technologies, much like any other set of technologies, are striving to address needs beyond SOA to initiatives not having the SOA label, but are built according to a service-oriented model. Process governance, governing cloud interactions and interactions with business partners (e.g. integration brokerages) are part of the functionality set, or at least are on the radar for most technology providers.”
By delivering an end-to-end SOA governance solution, Oracle SOA Governance 11g helps customers more efficiently and effectively manage the SOA lifecycle under a unified governance umbrella.
Oracle SOA Governance 11g is a key component of the Oracle Public Cloud.
