Web Services are important to any business because they enable systems in different companies to interact with each other, more easily than before. With businesses needing closer cooperation between suppliers and customers, engaging in more joint ventures and short-term marketing alliances, pursuing opportunities in new lines of business, and facing the prospect of more mergers and acquisitions, companies need the capability to link up their systems quickly with other companies. Thus Web Services give companies the capability to conduct more business electronically, with more potential business partners, in more different ways than before, and at reasonable cost. Fulcrum's initiatives in Web Services have delivered real life solutions to clients. Fulcrum's expertise in Web Services spans across J2EE enabled Web services as well as .NET enabled web services.
