Q7 – How can organizations connect computer programs?

  • Some companies find it advantageous to have programs on their computer systems directly access programs on other companies’ computers by using remote computing, also call distributed computing.

  • One option is to develop proprietary distributed applications.

    • Teams from both entities work together to

      • Determine application requirements, develop a design, and write and test the programs.

      • Decide on communications capabilities, operating systems, and distributed computing techniques.

    • These types of systems are difficult and very expensive to develop and operate because of the vast amount of coordination necessary to make them work.


Q7 – How can organizations connect computer programs?

  • An emerging Internet-based technology that companies are turning to for remote/distributed computing is called XML Web services. These services use a service-oriented architecture (SOA).

  • Web services offer these advantages:

    • They provide a standardized way for programs to access one another remotely without proprietary solutions.

    • Standardization leads to the immediate accessibility of the services.

    • Service descriptions on one computer provide other computers with information about available programs and how to communicate with them.

    • XML documents transmit the service data and define the XML schema; program components of the XML Web services automatically validate the data.


Q7 – How can organizations connect computer programs?

  • Web Services simplify the automation of supply chain interactions by providing flexibility and by reducing the costs and time associated with developing interorganizational information systems.

  • This figure shows how a retailer publishes a service description and makes it available to others.
