In the November 2002 issue of DM Review, we discussed the evolution of Web services through Phase 1 (1999-2001) and Phase 2 (2002-2004). This month, we discuss the evolution of Web services through 2005 and beyond.

Phase 3 (2005 and Beyond): In Phase 3 of the evolution of Web services, organizations will change not only their business processes, but also their business models as they move to real-time collaboration and integration of processes both within and between enterprises. While Phases 1 and 2 address the surfacing of Web services previously locked away in current and legacy systems, Phase 3 will see the emergence of new software products and systems that are designed and developed from the outset to be delivered as Web services. These will be used by organizations to find business partners dynamically, or to use remote resources, and will enable those organizations to adapt rapidly to change.
