Web Services Software

Deploying Web-services-enabled software will be an evolutionary process, not a revolutionary one. The majority of software vendors have committed to supporting Web services software standards within their established product lines, but it will take more than four years to evolve these immature standards, build up skills, and plan, build and test for new versions of software that gradually incorporate these standards. Web services standards will be deployed through multiple markets, such as integration suites, AD tools and some enterprise application segments.
