The ASP reincarnation - Computerworld

Computerworld has this article on the reincarnation of ASP model. It is amazing how the IT industry has come a full circle - starting with the mainframe oriented central computing model, moving over to the client-server model in the 80s and 90s and returning to a server based model. Not only business applications, if Google's vision is given shape, all computing will be on the server with the devices only acting as a means for interacting and rendering information.

On the ASP note, a leading Indian software company that I know is looking for ASP / Hosting partners for its Business Process Management and Content Management software in USA and Canada. If you or someone you know is interested, please get in touch with me at "sanjay at newgen dot net".
The ASP reincarnation - Computerworld: "Software as a service -- which typically eliminates hefty upfront license costs and requires little or no hardware or IT personnel to install, configure or maintain -- is growing in popularity among large corporations and small businesses alike. Last year's successful public stock offerings by fast-growing providers Inc. and RightNow Technologies Inc. have shined a spotlight on a software delivery model reminiscent of the buzz surrounding application service providers (ASP) in the late 1990s."
