David Berlind talks about the promised land of web-services but his actual article is kind of stuck with VBA and finding databases, etc.
It may be a while for true drag/drop web-services become available but he does a real disservice to try and drum up his point this way and then not really talk about it.
The fact is that web-services and XML still have some way to go - but that's just as much a problem with the web-service supplier as it is the understanding of the IT department.
I would be interested in hearing user's experiences with BizTalk - which was supposed to be the holy grail and how it has turned out in practice.
