Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS

Consulting & professional services

The know-how gained in the project can be used for the provision of consulting (technical and non-technical) and professional services, such as support services, educational services, managed services and a broad range of custom services like: product installation and integration to customer business, development services, study of customer’s business processes, etc.

More specifically, through the groundwork research conducted at the outset of the project, all the consortium partners attained significant amounts of information in the field of ASPs (Application Service Providers) and particularly information regarding the ASP market structure and the user requirements for outsourcing to an ASP. The partners also developed a best practice guide model that contained ASP and traditional services coupled with their associated costs. This knowledge can be used for the provision of consultancy services to prospective entrants to the ASP market as well as to companies that are thinking to outsource some of their business applications to ASPs.

In addition, the partners have gained significant technical know-how through the development of the ASP demonstrator system for the project. The three software vendors have gained expertise on the development of web services for the integration of their applications and the other development partners have gained significant expertise through the development of the integration and interoperability platform. This technical know-how can be used for the provision of consultancy and other professional services of a technical nature.
