Change management, as it used to be called, or the new buzzword ‘governance’ is a key component of any SOA.
If we consider that one of the main benefits of SOA is reuse, this can sometimes only happen when slight modifications are made to a service to allow it to be used for a different purpose. The change will normally not impact on the previous use but to ensure reuse, the change must be made.
