Web Services

Web Services have gained great importance in academic and industrial environments due to their focus on open standards widely accepted by industry, which guarantee the interoperability between the information systems of different organizations.

The emergence of Web Services has had a major impact on the way in which organizations integrate their applications, data and processes. The use of standards has reduced the cost of corporate integration projects by allowing the reuse of existing applications and benefiting from previous investments. Web Service adoption in the industry has allowed organizations to share information with their partners, providers and customers in a standardized manner.

The UPgrade European NETwork section of this issue contains a paper about open standards from ATI, the Spanish Member Society of CEPIS, through their publication Novatica; a paper about ICT security from the Italian AICA-produced publication, Mondo Digitale; finally, a paper about the informatics profession from ITNOW, the publication of the British Computer Society (BCS).
