Foundation Services

Microsoft also envisions that providing a compelling user experience to consumers is important for the success of Internet as a communication bus. To this effect, Microsoft plans to release some foundation or building block Web services. Software vendors can leverage against these foundation services. With time, Microsoft intends to release more such foundation services.

The first set of foundation services are being released as a product called Microsoft .NET My Services. Table 1.2 lists these services.
