Assembling Web services “Companies that have an enormous amount of data and disparate computing systems will find that they are a natural fit for web services.”…Companies are beginning to understand the real benefits of web services and are now mandating all new applications introduced into their IT environment to be web services-ready, rather than just web-ready…Beyond the enterprise, adoption is the most aggressive in industries where change is a constant. IT plays a key role in product and service innovation and competitive industries. Some of the industries include logistics, transportation, manufacturing, telecommunications and financial services, said Lim…Most companies who sincerely wanted to undertake a web services project today would find suitable skills in consultants but they will probably not find many experienced skills within their own IT shops.”
