I received an unsolicited ( I’ve tried to unsubscribe several times there, techtarget ) email today, that I actually happened to open because it advertised an “integrated maturity model for governance and security”. Yeah, I’m a sucker like that. This is what I read:
…a practical maturity model with illustrative use cases that can be used as a roadmap to quickly transition the Enterprise through the following states: Ungoverned Services, Centralized Service Proxy, Runtime Governance, and finally Policy Driven SOA/Security. The roadmap presents actionable “zero code” steps that can be implemented with existing infrastructure and off the shelf solution components that will accelerate the attainment of an integrated governance model and demonstrable ROI.
It’s like poetry for the information age, isn’t it? Or poetry when the poet is inspired by massive amounts of horse tranquilizers, opiates, and fried peanut butter and bacon sandwiches surging through their veins.
