Hi!
The main motivation for web services is platform-independent communication over some network.
To be able to accomplish this, data is usually sent in a textual format, for instance XML, JSON etc.
Wikipedia has a decent introduction of web services: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_service
Best wishes!
