(Other stories by Christina Torode)
"Windows 2000 is gaining momentum among hosting providers, as Digex Inc. and Pandesic LLC both unveiled plans Tuesday to migrate to Microsoft Corp.'s long-awaited platform."
"No surprise there. Microsoft and Compaq Computer Corp. made a combined $50 million investment in Beltsville, Md.-based Digex last month, and Pandesic, Sunnyvale. Calif., is a Microsoft Business Internet Analytics (BIA) provider partner. BIA is a set of tools and processes that deliver clickstream data analysis and data warehousing."
"It is all part of Microsoft's efforts to entice ASPs and ISVs to develop e-business applications on its platform and adopt Windows 2000 as their operating environment for hosted applications. Microsoft began reaching out to the ASP space early last month via investments in Corio Inc. and Interland Inc."
