The Business Model!
The advent of ISP offering value added services in an emerging
high technology area is essentially driven by the fast changing
needs of businesses that seriously lack time, money or resource
to purchase, develop and manage applications. Outsourcing IT needs
is not new to the business world. Two upfront advantages of outsourcing
are cost savings and speed of deployment. Many customers initially
tend to reduce cost to direct hardware expense associated with a
total cost of ownership (TCO) model. For small and medium size enterprises,
Arambh Instapro Gateway for the ISPs/ASPs is conceptualized to be
in a position to deliver the same sets of applications at a lower
TCO. Arambh Instapro Gateway can offer more rapid deployment of
application across the enterprise, including planning, implementation,
resale of connectivity, value added access services and 24x7 support

Arambh Instapro Gateway shall be revolutionary to the ISP/ASP in
that it extends the service model to include applications configured
both vertically and horizontally. Benefit is the aggregation of
resources that lets the ISP/ASP offer access to applications at
a cost lower than companies can deliver internally. This includes
the hardware cost, as well as the substantial additional costs to
fund a corporate IT support. Because of the relative lack of availability
of business applications for small and medium enterprises (SMEs),
these markets present the most promising opportunity for ISPs/ASPs.
Arambh Instapro Gateway services include end-to-end management or
access services in addition to remote application server collocation/hosting.

As Information Week notes, however, "Customers could struggle
with integrating outsourced applications unless single-app Service
Providers establish partnerships with other vendors and outsourcers."
To solve this problem, the same article notes that "new middlemen
may emerge to manage relationships between customers and single-app
Service Providers, integrating hosted applications - for them."
