About Web Services and Perficient's Leadership
In 2001, Perficient launched a solutions initiative in Web Services. Web Services are a new generation of XML standards based software and services that enable the dynamic integration of business processes. International Data Corporation (IDC) forecasts the Web Services market to grow to $50 billion by 2005.
The demand for Web Services is driven by a basic need among the Global 3000 to integrate numerous disparate applications, designs and run-time environments, said Andrew Sweet, chief technology officer of Perficient. This market is a natural extension of our middleware/EAI expertise and we intend to aggressively address this growing demand.
