According to Paolo Malinverno, Gartner Analyst, "Through 2010, the lack of working SOA governance arrangements will be the most common reason for SOA failures. The biggest barriers to SOA adoption will be non-technical issues related to inadequate governance, lack of clear value metrics, poorly defined requirements and scope, and insufficient business involvement in project prioritization and service identification."1

Giacomo Segalli, Partner at Spike Reply, said, "We have consolidated experience and skills in SOA & Web2.0 Security and via the Vordel partnership we’re able to provide to our customers the perfect “link” between consultancy and technology. As a result we’re able to assist our customer during the entire life cycle of a “SOA Security adoption plan” : from best practices definition, SOA Security & Risk Assessment and, finally, through to design and implementation of a SOA Security Infrastructure."

Giacomo Segalli continued, "We have partnered with Vordel because their best-of-breed products address the stringent governance and security requirements of our customers across several industry sectors. Using Vordel solutions our customers are able to leverage their existing infrastructures; reduce the time to production of their SOA applications; and generate a quick and high return on investment."

Jacques Declas, VP Global Sales with Vordel, welcoming the announcement, said, "As the leading security consultancy company in Italy, Spike Reply is proving to be the perfect partner for Vordel. Spike Reply’s decision to select Vordel as their preferred security and XML networking platform is testimony to the proven capabilities of Vordel’s technology and our track record in delivering enterprise level solutions across industry sectors."
