For companies that want to turn their Web content into a Web service and need to do so soon without using developers, WebCollage Syndicator is a good system to get Web services up and running fast. But the product is very much an interim solution that may be less useful once Web services technologies are heavily integrated with standard Web development platforms.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // WebCollage enables businesses to quickly convert Web content and applications into Web services, possibly giving them a leg up on competitors.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // Once service standards are in place, technologies such as WebCollage Syndicator will need to change a lot to stay useful to IT.

Only simple tagging required to create Web services; can easily manage multiple services and partners.

Requires server component to deliver services; no built-in integration with SOAP and UDDI.
