Is Web Services viable for businesses.

Do we believe that businesses will use Web services for their inhouse applications? At our work, we do not have a website or webserver. But we build enterprise applications. I really thought that Webservices were cool, when I last saw them, but didn't see how a company like ours could use it. I mean it would be the same as running an App server or RMI on our network.
I could see advantages to Web services for getting prices for items from our vendors, but that would require all the Electrical Vendors in the country to work together and create a unified Web Service. Which I don't really see happening.
What do you think?

Let's put it this way -- the first vendor to offer their products through a web service has a competitive advantage over other vendors since the downstream companies (car companies, manufacturers like IBM, etc.) all want their vendors to use web services...

I think all these technologies are for businesses anyway.
But it depends which business finds what technology suitable for them.
In terms of webservices it is quite new and I should say is it is not released by any vendor yet.
I am not sure if there are any finilised specification ready for the implementators yet, let alone the real implementation.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
