Why is it important to govern Application Services?

Application Service Governance allows your organization to reach 2 major goals

  • Multichannel transformation

    Move application logic from their respective channels to a central orchestrator to reduce the maintenance costs of each individual channel.
    The same services used by the Mobile App can be exposed via API to the Web, Contact Center App, Voice Portals, Social App, Remote branch applications etc.

  • Expose services to third parties

    Overcome the limitations of Enterprise Business solutions by exposing APIs to third-party applications that need to interact with mission critical platforms.
    Efficiently manage the services orchestration, security, performance, auditing, users, versions, and service levels.
