You can use WCF as DAL. However, main purpose of WCF / Web service is to provide data remotely. There are many different scenario you can use WCF. I give you couple of example, say you have a data driven website and you want to use some of this websites
data in another website then you can use WCF/Web service, Or say you want to develop Win app / Silverlight app in this case keep you DB and WCF on server and give reference to to Win app / Silverlight app to consume data, another example is to apps for smart
devices which access these WCF service and consume data.
I hope this helps.
