Web services are praised by research and practitioners as a powerful device to integrate business processes even across firm boundaries. However, sometimes even apparently simple operations are not ideally suited to be implemented by web services. This paper explains potential business factors that can restrain web services from unfolding their full potential. Based on a simple causal model for software risk this paper then analyzes why web services may be employed as broadly as possible even in untypical usage scenarios, as they may capture additional benefits from better software risk mitigation.
