Is Web Service Technology a Good Fit For My Organization?
What can Web Services do for my business? Unfortunately, there is no complete correct answer to this question. Though the growth and adoption of Web Services in business hinges upon the convergence of a "Generally accepted" set of industry standards, today's myriad of overlapping, and sometimes divergent, standards do not help this cause. This paper will outline some basic concepts, and entertain a few simple questions, to help you form a more coherent view of Web Services. The goal of this paper will be to help place your organization at the beginning of a roadmap to successful adoption of Web Services as part of your application integration strategy.
