Hi,
It is beginning nice question, Web Services allows different applications to communicate each other and share data and services among themselves,

Mean to say that like example I want to develop stock market website, so I will create or develop all functionalities of stock and market website, it will take much time to do for anyone, so we will expose or call that stock market service in my application and will share all information what we need to communicate each other so we will save the timings.

plz look into below link for more information.

A web service is a method of communication between two electronic devices over the World Wide Web. A web service is a software function provided at a network address over the web or the cloud, it is a service that is "always on" as in the concept of utility computing.
