Internet industry leaders such as Amazon, eBay, Google, and FedEx offer publicly-available Web services as APIs into desirable data and familiar functionality. For instance Amazon.com offers Web services for its product search, cart system, and wish lists, eBay Web services expose item search, bidding, and auction creation, Google Web services offer access to Web search, cache, and spelling applications, and FedEx Web services connect to its package shipping and tracking systems.

Analysts predict businesses could save billions of dollars by implementing Web services and SOA but say less than 20% of companies have gained significant experience with these technologies so far.
