The W3C defines a "web service" as "a software system designed to support interoperable machine-to-machine interaction over a network". It allows client applications, regardless of platform (such as a mobile device or website) to access the data.
In other words, a web service allows you to accomplish task(s) on several platforms and/or tasks previously unavailable due to the nature of the program (such as a mobile device) or due to the restricted nature of the data source.
