Enterprises that deploy Web services without mature strategies for security will be vulnerable to cyberattacks. Web services security decisions are complex and interoperability is a key challenge. WS-I’s guidance, including the Security Scenarios and the forthcoming Basic Security Profile, could be an important factor in the success of enterprises’ Web services security initiatives.
Ray Wagner, Gartner, Inc.

WS-I will make Web services interoperability real.
Ted Schadler, Forrester Research

Interoperability has been pretty challenging, and [WS-I] will make interoperability much easier. The WS-I Basic Profile is a very good thing for customers.
Anne Thomas Manes, Burton Group

WS-I can provide much-needed clarity for the practical and pragmatic use of Web services security standards.
Ray Wagner, Gartner, Inc.

Support for the Basic Profile is the baseline for interoperable Web services. Customers should demand that all of their Web services-enabled technology be compliant with the Basic Profile, and that in turn will lay the foundation for Web services to fulfill their promise and provide technology-independent interoperability.
Daniel Sholler, META Group

The WS-I Basic Profile is a very important document that addresses and solves many of the basic interoperability issues associated with Web services.
Anne Thomas Manes, Burton Group

Require the WS-I Basic Profile going forward.

This [Basic Profile 1.0] is exactly what is needed. This will become the gold standard for interoperable Web services.
Daniel Sholler, META Group

With the release of the Basic Profile, WS-I becomes the organization that is at the center of vendor and enterprise efforts to promote Web services adoption and interoperability between competing implementations.
Mike Gilpin and Uttam Narsu, Forrester Research

Enterprises considering Web services security issues should see this [WS-I Security Scenarios] as a significant opportunity to influence future developments in Web services security. The draft scenarios are well thought-out and reasonably comprehensive . . .
Ray Wagner, Gartner, Inc.

When using Web services to connect heterogeneous systems, enforce use of the WS-I Basic Profile as part of a core development process.Organizations acquiring service-oriented business applications should require vendors to indicate compliance with the Basic Profile.
