"The UDDI registry model is one of the central elements of an interoperable framework that ensures the effective interaction of services in a service oriented architecture. By enabling policy-based distribution and management of enterprise Web services, a UDDI registry can deliver significant business value. It can help ensure that the convenience of developers, the requirements of enterprise architects, and the underlying business policies are not in opposition; in fact, it brings all of these needs into closer alignment by increasing software flexibility, reuse, centralization and control; allowing enforcement and ultimately governance."
