The future

CW360° E-business column: Real World: Web services – the future, where Atos KPMG Consulting’s Andy Tinlin offers 10 predictions for the future of web services:

  • The standards underpinning Web services will hold up.
  • The financial services, travel, energy and public sectors will be among the first to embrace Web services.
  • The US will not take its traditional lead over Europe when it comes to Web services innovation.
  • Web services will dramatically change the software market.
  • There will be a shift in the balance of power between technology suppliers and their customers, in favour of the users.
  • Web services will become the basic building block of technology and business infrastructures.
  • Security issues – particularly personal privacy, authentication and data ownership – will rise up the corporate agenda.
  • Web services will boost broadband adoption.
  • We will see a growing demand for improved knowledge management, data storage and data retrieval systems.
  • As Web services mature, they will bring new organisational models, including the much-discussed “virtual organisation”.

Interesting predictions. Most are correct, I think.
