Fortune 1000?XML and Web service projects?are on the rise, according to a new study?by RESolution Market Research (which was backed by?Conformative Systems).

"Among our survey respondents, service-oriented architectures (SOAs) and Web services are now a key choice for application development because of the ease of programming and data interchange," said Allison Wilt, president of RESolution Market Research. "However, while many of these companies indicate that XML-based solutions are becoming a strategic direction for their application development, performance concerns are limiting its use."

  • The median XML LAN traffic load in 2004 was 20 percent.?
  • More than half of respondents expect XML traffic load to grow to more than 40 percent in 2005.?
  • Web services are being deployed in the data center for business-critical applications such as standards compliance, legacy systems integration, supply-chain, ERP, and other applications.?
  • As enterprises deploy Web services in mainstream production environments, application performance has emerged as a key architectural concern. Most customers are addressing this problem by adding to server infrastructure and continually tuning software applications.
