The paper investigates a new approach of leveraging Web services technologies to support systems integrations. The paper provides a literature review of the current practice of Web Services from both technical and business perspectives to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. A solution framework aiming at providing the current limitations of Web Services particularly on capability for integration and transactions is subsequently proposed to demonstrate how techniques from different computing disciplines may be deployed to answer the questions that have been raised. The solutions focus on a knowledge driven approach through a knowledge management component. The links between the various framework components and their responsibility in delivering Web Services are also discussed.
