Driving The Agile
The intention of Web
services is to pave the way for vision fulfillment of
collaborative commerce by removing constraints to
business imposed by IT in its present form.
loose coupling model of Web services allows enterprises
to overcome the myriad ways businesses use to reach
their customers and partners today, to adopt new
business models right in time and to serve and utilize
adhocracy of business transactions and processes - the
promise of business agility!
The Web services
model is independent of whether the components being
composed belong to the same organization or form a
hybrid service using functions from many individual
companies which empowers organizations to benefit from
collaborative synergies of their trading community and
to focus on their core business.
