Web Services in CIO Canada

I read the article “Getting the yellow light” in CIO Canada (July, 2004). I think the title is misleading. I do not see the yellow light here. And if you think the yellow light followed by a red light, the title is completely nonsense.

Despite the miserable title, the article presents the CIO’s opinion on Web Services projects. The CIOs understand the road ahead include Web Services. Many companies have on-going Web Services, though in small scale. People see three phases of using Web Services: the first phase is for communication, i.e. using Web Services as a middleware to integrate the disparate applications. “The second and the third phases encompass facilitating more robust transactions and expanded collaboration, enabled by integrated workflow.”


  • Web services are already out there and they work. Amazon, Google... Whether web services as defined by standard organizations will take off, that's a diffirent story.
