In our organization we are working on legacy technology so far and planning to move ahead with new technologies. So, we are trying to find which technology/framework is best for an organization in each area. So, I would like to understand how WCF is different from Webservices, why should we use that? What benefits we will get in the long run?

The key benefit is WCF supports different types of binding but webservice supports only http binding.

There are other good reasons like Service Orientation, Interoperability, Multiple, Message Patterns, Service Metadata, Data Contracts, Security, Multiple Transports and Encodings, Reliable and Queued Messages, Durable Messages, Transactions, AJAX and REST Support, Extensibility.
