AD CS Deployment - Standard AD CS Deployment vs. Certificate Enrollment Web Services - Which is preferred?

Last Modified: 2018-02-22
We are reviewing options for deploying Cross Forest, Users and Computers Certificate Auto-Enrollment.  
Which method is preferred over the other?  What are the Pro / Cons between the two options.  We are leaning towards the Web Services method as it appears to be the modern architecture for future proofing our design.

Web Enrollment allows clients to request certificates from the CA using a webpage, instead of issuing directly from the CA console.
Web Enrollment Services requires AD CS to work. Its not a replacement for AD CS, its a sub-component.  Or maybe I'm misunderstanding your question.
