SOA Governance at EDP: A Global Energy Company

Energias de Portugal (EDP) ranks among Europe’s major electricity and natural gas operators in the generation, distribution and trading industries. It’s one of the largest players wind energy companies in the world, with more than tem million customers and twelve-thousand workers. In this session hear how an SOA Governance initiative is helping EDP to streamline integrations between systems, establishing a model that closes the gap between business and IT, reducing time-to-market and increasing IT asset reusability.

Information systems play a central role in supporting the business challenges energy companies are facing, as new businesses are developed, as the energy grid and the relationship with customers is changing at a faster pace. EDP operates in a sector where those challenges are particularly acute and where the appropriate SOA approach is of paramount importance. In this presentation we will talk about the challenges of the SOA Governance Program’s definition and implementation, and how the initial plan and subsequent global SOA Governance Framework evolved through EDP’s projects.
