We also participate in the UCB SOA Governance project, a coordinated effort among campus teams building services-based tools and applications to foster and facilitate re-use and sharing of service models. SOA raises some thorny governance issues as the projects (often developed within multi-institution collaborative communities) deploy across campus. The SOA Governance group provides a forum to consider opportunities for (and challenges to) reuse and sharing of service models and contracts. We are also working to define and formalize a process and a set of principles that can act as a model for SOA governance among distributed and disparate communities. We are also sharing methodological experiences, and working towards the development of a set of SOA best practices for the campus.
