Web Services Web Services are is defined by the W3C as "a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network ". The article below describes how BT announced a major reorganization in order to make it easier for a company to develop and implement web-based services. About 20,000 new employees will be moved into the new business units that will utilize web services on the 21 st Century Network. This network is a new national broadband infrastructure that BT is implementing. This transformation will show BT moving away from the 20 th century hardware based applications into the 21 st Century software-based services.

Unformatted text preview: This would enable services to be available in real time and around the globe. There were no real problems listed in the article.

I would not change a thing. It really seems that BT is on the right track and looking toward the future. It also is making sure to keep in mind the importance of both their current customers and employees. http://www.businessweek.com/globalbiz/content/apr2007/gb20070425_490840.htm http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_service...
