In this section, we will answer the most-common questions we get almost daily about Corporate
Web Services. If you have a specific question that is not answered here, please leave
us an email describing your question or problem.
At My Web Services.ca we do answer all questions we get as soon as it is
What are Web Services?
You will find the answer to that question if you
Exactly on wich technology does the My Web Services™ Platform run on ?
Since the My Web Services™ Platform's greatest qualities are flexibility
and low cost, it will run on:
Microsoft .Net-based products and software
Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) specification
IBM's J2EE-based WebSphere application server
Oracle's 9i Application server, database & tools
The J2EE 1.3 & 1.4 Web Services industry specification
Just exactly how standardized are Web Services ? We don't want to go into new IT
technology or Web Services just because "everyone else is doing it".
Excellent question! This is an abstract from the W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium)
of a working draft, dated 14 November 2002:
"The use of Web services on the World Wide Web is expanding rapidly as the need
for application-to-application communication and interoperability grows. These services
provide a standard means of communication among different software applications
involved in presenting dynamic context-driven information to the user. In order
to promote interoperability and extensibility among these applications, as well as
to allow them to be combined in order to perform more complex operations, a standard
reference architecture is needed. The Web Services Architecture Working Group at W3C
is tasked with producing this reference architecture.
We are ready to fully integrate all our departments into a solid Web Services global
solution and we were strongly referred by many to the My Web Services™ Platform.
Just how certain can we be that it will really deliver ? Everybody claims that they
"are the best". What truly makes the My Web Services™ Platform better ?
The My Web Services™ Platform
offers a better, simpler and much less expensive alternative to existing integration
software. The My Web Services™ Platform can reliably and securely exchange any data
between global systems for a much lower cost and without using proprietary technology.
Once you have tried it, you will never want to use any other IT solution.
The My Web Services™ Platform abides to all industry standards and is fully
compatible with any corporate IT system in use today. It can run on any IBM mainframe,
any UNIX or Linux server or any operating system running on Microsoft's Windows™,
including Windows XP™ and Exchange Server 2003™.
How much does it all cost ?
We cannot precisely answer such a broad question for the simple reason that not one
company is the same, nor are its IT-related needs and objectives. However, all we can
tell you at this initial stage is that the My Web Services™ Platform costs less
than any other competing Web Services solution. Continue in carefully reading all the
pages of this Web site and you will be convinced that our Platform offers the best
value for the money.
With all we keep reading about Internet security breaches and "holes" in Microsoft
software, just how secure is the My Web Services™ Platform ?
That is an excellent question. The My Web Services™ Platform ensures that all corporate
data and messages are delivered in real-time and it authenticates the
identity of all its users, utilizing interfaces where you must enter a user ID number,
followed by an encrypted password.
The advantages of all this is that all corporate and user information is fully secured
and encoded, using strong 128 bit encryption keys.
The My Web Services™ Platform is the safest Web Services solution there is on
the market today.
OK, we are ready to implement your solution in all departments of our company. We have
145 offices spread across the globe in more than 30 countries. How can we do it ? Can the
My Web Services™ Platform integrate and manage all that ?
The My Web Services™ Platform was built from the ground up to be global. The Web is
global. International business is global. Today, distance is not a problem anymore.
Even in remote and distant areas, a lot of times the Web is now available securely via
satellite. As of January 2003, satellite companies and providers offering Web access
via satellite communications could deliver bandwith capabilities of up to 10 megs/sec.
in some cases.
Not only will the My Web Services™ Platform actually do it, but it will surpass any other
competing solution available anywhere today. It will do it faster, better and at a lower
cost. The My Web Services™ Platform took more than two years to develop. Since it went
live in October of 2002, our corporate clients have managed to reduce their IT costs up
to 20% in some cases. Additionally, all users report higher productivity, better
flexibility and time saved on most IT projects.
