Two years ago, Microsoft introduced .NET as the way the company would keep itself at the forefront of computing for the next decade. Since that time, Microsoft has defined and redefined what .NET is, what Web services are and how its business model would look in the new age of Web services.

In this special report, ENT offers a report card on how Microsoft's .NET efforts are coming. We also look at how other major industry players are approaching Web services, and the effect Web Services will have on security. Finally, we explore whether Web services represent a paradigm shift or an incremental step.
