With Systinet 3.0, HP broadens SOA governance role to encompass services lifecycle, business processes, IT service management

The movement is to expand SOA governance, but perhaps more importantly, expand governance in general across more of what IT touches. Rules, roles, business context, policy, development-to-deployment lifecycles, operational efficiency, projects and services -- all need to be brought into a contextual whole. Not by a common product set, but via standards, technology provider inclusion, and with a methodological and cultural commonality emphasis. There really isn't another place to try and find this common framework for stitching together the disparate aspects of IT management -- the SOA registry is as good as we have nowadays.

I'd like to see it do the same thing now in the realm of modeling.
