The Blurring Line Between ASPs and BPOs…Charles Darwin would be jealous. Analysts today can watch a new species, the ASP, evolve. In these early days the species is exhibiting a wide variety. First, there’s the original stand-alone ASP version. But some ASPs are adding business process outsourcing to their dance cards. A number of markets are converging.
Cap Gemini Ernst and Young (CGEY) has formed a strategic and exclusive relationship with Corio Inc., an ASP with a broad footprint, according to Craig S. Johnson, vice president and director of ASP solutions for CGEY. Corio, which specializes in SAP, PeopleSoft, Siebel, Commerce One and BroadVision solutions, will become the sole ASP provider of those applications for CGEY, who will become the solutions designer and implementer. The consulting firm plans to focus all of its clients’ systems integration and business transformations around Corio’s applications.
