Web Service Integration
Custom features have to designed and developed from scratch. They are the most expensive option, and generally aren't the best solution when CMS and frameworks already exist. However, the investment makes sense for government and enterprise organizations, and others requiring very specialized features. There are few limits to design and development possibilities of custom projects.
Web Service development work could include creating a web service to allow others to access an in-house database, or connecting to an existing web service to add a new feature to an application.
Web Service examples:
- Publishing government data for access by computer programs
- Obtaining live traffic, weather, or public transportation data
- Integrating social media accounts with a website
