    Presentation Overview

    ASP to Web Service Provider

    SpeeDEV provides its flagship 'Process Lifecycle Management' tool both as a product license and ASP service. In the third quarter of 2001, speeDEV decided to develop a comprehensive strategy for its Web Services around the product to address a number of business requirements. The Web Service offering was planned in number of phases to cover various levels of ASP functionality.

    In the presentation the speaker shares his companies experience to define the Web Service strategy evolving out of the ASP service. He will also describe the experience in using Microsoft .NET as framework and Visual Studio .NET as tool for developing the Web Service.
