Web services architecture and design
Web are services (usually including some combination of programming and data, but possibly including human resources as well) that are made available from a business' Web server for Web users or other Web-connected programs. Providers of Web services are generally known as application service providers. Web services range from such major services as storage management and customer relationship management (CRM) down to much more limited services such as the furnishing of a stock quote and the checking of bids for an auction item.
