Is any industry really taking advantage of Web services today?

With all the talk of Web services, is any industry really taking advantage of Web services today?
Yes, real-life Web services are emerging particularly in the B2B market. Companies such as Intel are driving the adoption of Web services in this area. They rely on E-business standards such as RosettaNet to streamline their entire supply chain, improve collaboration and reduce support costs working with manufacturers, distributors, resellers, shippers and end-users. As we know, particularly in today?s economy companies are trying to do more with less. That means traditional electronic data interchange (EDI) systems are out. EDI systems run over expensive proprietary networks, while software that uses RosettaNet standards utilizes XML and Internet protocols.
