Lowering IT Total Cost of Ownership with Web Services
IT managers realize that attempts to lower the total cost of ownership of IT investments can be an error-prone, risky endeavor. Today’s business and technology environments are simply too dynamic and unpredictable to make accurate calculations of IT TCO. Companies need an approach to technology that reduces the risks inherent in these changing landscapes–an approach that can help them leverage change to their best advantage. Web Services open the door to this new approach to technology. Companies that build centrally managed, loosely coupled Service-oriented architectures with Web Services can achieve the business agility that provides the key to reducing IT TCO in an ever-changing business world.
