Governance Engine Hosting Servers

An engine host is an OMAG Server that hosts one or more of a particular type of governance engine. These governance engines are using metadata to drive particular processing to aid in the governance of metadata and the assets it describes.

A governance engine is paired with a specific access service and they may well interact with third party technology. They typically have an external API to control and query the work of the engine and may well be called by a view server as part of the support for a user interface.

The plan is to combine these servers in to a single engine hosting server that run specific engine services for each type of supported governance engine.
