How does governance work in WSRR? Governance means controlling your services through their life cycle, from the initial conception to being deployed into production, and then deprecated and finally retired from use.
WSRR comes with a profile which contains models, life cycles and policies which show a recommended practice of how to manage services. This profile is called the "Governance Enablement Profile" or "GEP" for short.
Some common questions answered by governance are:
WSRR will model both sides of a Service relationship; the provider of a service, who codes and runs the service somewhere, as well as the consumer of a service, who is using the service to provide function for their application.
Now luckily there is a great introduction to the GEP in the WSRR Information Center, which goes into a lot more detail about how the various objects, life cycles and policies interact to allow you to model Services in WSRR.
