Web Service Economy

from the starting-to-get-it dept

For quite a while I’ve been arguing here that no one had yet done a good job explaining just what the hell web services are. They get a lot of hype, but I still couldn’t find someone willing to explain to me why they were useful. Yesterday we posted an article that explained things more clearly than I had seen before and today in (of all places!) the Red Herring, there’s actually a very good article describing just what the hell web services are. Unlike many Herring articles, this one seems to avoid the hype and does a good job explaining exactly what web services are, how they could be useful, and what hurdles are in place before they become common place (and what that means for a variety of companies). If you have been trying to understand just what the hell web services really are, this is worth reading. Hopefully, this means that we’ll start dealing with less hype, and more real, useful applications in the space.
