Application governance provides a structured and systematic way for an organization to make important decisions about its applications. It establishes decision-making authority and precepts that ensure that application investments support the organization's business goals and objectives. Application governance infrastructure (AGI) provides tools and services that facilitate the development and execution of an application governance program. This Reference Architecture template describes the functions and capabilities of AGI.
