Software as a service: Mediation between departmental SaaS consumers and multiple 3rd party service providers

This demo explores how organizations can apply a mediation proxy pattern to mediate between SaaS consumers in different departments within the organization and multiple third party or internal service providers. A scenario is shown where the central IT department of an organization allows departments to search for third party services using a customized WebSphere services registry and repository. A mediation engine built using WebSphere DataPower SOA Appliance is used to mediate between departmental applications and third party services. This scenario further explores how the central IT department can enforce regulatory compliance for outgoing services traffic and meter service usage by each department for charge back using Tivoli Usage and Accounting Manager.
