This years predictions

By | 2004/01/05

When it comes to predictions, I like to put it on the line and make mine measurable. As published at SearchWebServices, my predictions this year are two;

  • Web services will continue to struggle to be deployed on the Internet. I’ll restate an earlier prediction I made this year; that by the end of 2004, the number of parties offering publicly available non-RESTful Web services (as registered with XMethods.net) will have plateaued or be falling.
  • Another high profile public Web service will be developed in both REST and Web services/SOA styles, and again — as with Amazon — the REST based service will service at least 80% of the transactions.
