Web Services: A Management Overview 

A web service is a software program that makes itself available over the internet for another system to use. Web services use a set of international standards for communication between different systems. This seminar will provide you with an overview of the role that web services can play in your organisation. It will give you an understanding of the functionality available, the various international standards involved, and the requirements to implement web services successfully.
