Abstract

This chapter examines Web services in China. More specifically, it examines the state-of-the-art of China's Web services in terms of cloud services, mobile services, and social networking services through exploring several leading Web service providers in the ICT industry, including Alibaba, Tencent, China Mobile, and Huawei. This research reveals that the Chinese culture has played an important role in the success of China's Web services. The trade-off ideology and communication conventions from Chinese traditional culture, as well as Mao Zedong thought, greatly influenced the development of China's Web services. The findings of this chapter might facilitate the research and development of Web services and better understanding of the growth in China's ICT industry, as well as future trends.
