Web services holds the promise of moving beyond the simple exchange of information - the dominating mechanism for application integration today - to the concept of accessing application services that are encapsulated within old and new applications. This means organizations can not only move information from application to application, but they also can create composite applications, leveraging any number of back-end application services found in any number of applications, local or remote.
Key to this concept is figuring out how Web services fit into the existing application integration technology and approaches. For example, when is the use of Web services appropriate, and how is cost-effectiveness determined? In this presentation, we'll look at the notion of Web services in context of application integration. We'll look at approaches, architectures, and enabling technologies that you can implement today to address the problem of application integration using the new paradigm of application service-based application integration.
