The technology of Web services (WS) has been a hot area in the software industry for many years. Many organizations in the past 5 years have conducted surveys designed to get a profile of the state of Web services adoption in various subject areas. Some of those survey results are available free from the Internet. Since conducting a large scale Web services survey takes time and significant financial commitment, the research conducted in this chapter is a synthesis from published free survey results.

Some of the current issues in Web services adoption and implementation are standards, training, and security.
