SOA Governance standalone? or merge with IT Management?

"Governance" in general and SOA Governance in particular has been a buzz word for sometime now.

My definition for Governance is making sure that a "thing" works as it is supposed to work. Replace the "thing" with SOA, IT, state, country etc.,

One of the emerging trends for past few years is "Business Transaction Management" for managing the composite IT applications configuration, performance and "Governance"

Traditionally the IT management tools and frameworks have looked at the IT as operations management, quality management, performance management, configuration management etc., disciplines.

In this trend the problem of IT management is from a business point of view. That is good. So, what is happenning in the technology?

1. Application Performance Management
2. Composite Application Management using run time discovery of relationships between the components (services) of the application
3. Business transaction management tools

Here is the question:

Will the new trend merge in traditional IT Management tools?
or
A standalone set of new SOA Governance tools emerge due to the new trend?

Based on my "UNIX" philosophy, I think an integrated set of tools that consist of traditional IT management with the new SOA Governance would be a best fit to tailor to the needs of contemporary corporates!

Let us wait and see....
