"Sure most of the big names have jumped into the ASP ring: Dell, Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. Now Gateway has joined the fray via a $25 million stake in Linux software developer eSoft Inc., while at the same time giving the public a peek at its plans to offer its own Web, VPN and application hosting services. But there are hundreds of smaller hardware and software vendors scrambling for the attention of ASPs."

"The announcements expected to come out of the Internet & Electronic Conference & Exposition in New York next week say it all:"

"Intelisys Electronic Commerce is unveiling an ASP version of its IEC-Enterprise Internet-based purchasing application for large corporate and government buyers; e-business infrastructure provider WRQ Inc. is debuting a relationship that enables e-businesses to use XML technology for integration of data in IBM mainframe, AS/400 and Unix hosting applications into information portals; 2Way is introducing a new e-business application that gathers feedback on customer experiences; and the list goes on."
