Subject: RE: [ebxml-mktg-sc] IBM and WS

It could also be a part of the 'packaging' position we integrate into
our external releases even with our collaboration with vertical
industry...everyone is interested.

GM is a prime example with the use of a SOA internal to their enterprise
and use of ebXML for shared collaboration.

From interview with Bob Sutor:

"Q. Are any companies actually using Web services these days?

A. Many companies are using Web services. A lot of them are in the early
adopter phase. Many of them are using pilots. But if you look at reports
from analyst groups like Forrester and Hurwitz, they'll tell you that
companies they've surveyed, about 40 percent of the companies are very
serious about deploying Web services.... After two and a half years, 40
percent deployment is excellent. I think the reason why is that Web
services are a good idea. It's not just, "Let's try something random and
see if it works." This is the culmination of, at this point, decades of
trying to do electronic communication between businesses. 

>>>>>> I'm going out on a limb here and saying that IBM has
contracts with Forrester and Hurwitz to analyze and promote WS...

We probably want to get in front of these people to educate
them how WS and ebXML are a symbiotic pairing.

Cheers, DW.
