Web Services and the Institutional Web [C5]


“Struggling to integrate new services with existing applications? Need to interoperate with other institutions or service providers, all with different systems infrastructures? Fed up of the spiralling costs application development?”
Media hype suggests that Web Services Technologies may provide the answer! Web Services Technologies is essentially a framework of self contained, modular applications, which can be published, discovered and executed over the network by remote programs, using lightweight protocols.

This workshop aims to provide an overview of the technologies involved and consider possible future usage within UK HE and FE. Group discussions will be used to:

  • Identify potential scenarios for use of Web Services within the community
  • Assess the risks involved and barriers to uptake
  • Identify the advice and guidelines required by the community
