This IBM Redbooks publication teaches you how to automate your
runtime policy using a centralized policy management system. The SOA
Policy Solution provides a centralized policy administration,
enforcement, and monitoring for runtime policies that enable traffic
management for Service Level Agreement enforcement, service mediation,
and other customized policies. Policies may be defined once and reused
among multiple services, thus enabling a standardized, consistent
approach to runtime policy that saves time and money for implementation
and maintenance of non-functional requirements for the enterprise and
assists with faster time to market.
Business Users would use the
SOA Policy Solution to help create the Service Level Agreement's for
their business services to deliver on promises for business performance.
IT Architects would use the SOA Policy solution to architect the policy
solution patterns that will standardize the runtime policy usage at
their organization. Developers will select specific policy patterns to
implement the non-functional requirements associated with their
projects. Operations will provide information on operation needs and
create standardized monitoring policy for operational action at runtime.
