Saturday, May 15, 2004Web services technology--standards-based Internet middleware--promises to deliver more flexible integration more easily across more internal applications and external partnersLarge companies, which stand to benefit the most from Web services, have far more in production and development than small and medium-size ones. Companies that are increasing spending on enterprise application integration (EAI) have significantly more Web services in development, likely because they are moving toward Web services instead of message-oriented middleware in support of this effort. And companies that use J2EE have about as many Web services in production and in development as ones that use .Net, indicating that the two development platforms are used for Web services development about equally. Services leads, retail lags, and media gets into the game. The mean number of Web services for all industries is 10 in development and 10 in production.Business services companies--including professional services, transportation and logistics, and construction and engineering--are far ahead of the pack, with an average of 17 Web services in development and 12 in production. The study concludes that there is continued demand for both standards-based Web services and message-oriented middleware approaches to integration, especially where the higher quality of service available from the latter is still a requirement for the business process.
