Martin Butler, president of analyst Butler Group, warned companies not to invest in web services too quickly. ‘Caution is the keynote,’ he told delegates attending the analyst group’s web services symposium in London.
‘Web services is a long haul.’
Butler said a number of areas surrounding the core web services still need to be expanded if the technology is to succeed.
Mark Quirk, head of engineering for .Net at Microsoft, agreed that current web devices have a number of shortcomings. ‘Our number one priority is improving security,’ he said.
Quirk also admitted applications for Microsoft .Net have been slower to evolve than originally expected. ‘Over the last two years, we’ve seen the reality that it will take time to get used to web services,’ he said.
