Web services are a set of technology standards and communication protocols that enable systems to share information via the Internet. Web services technologies break down information silos across and beyond the enterprise by enabling more efficient application-to-application integration, thus reducing the expense and complexity of business-to-business connectivity.
Web services can be used to leverage existing legacy applications by making them accessible viathe Internet or intranet, or, more radically, they can translate thecorporation’s business activities into a set of new Internet-deliveredservices.
