What Happens When ASPs Fail?
from the oops.--no-more-software dept
Some companies are suddenly (and painfully) discovering the downside of the ASP model. If they rent their software (which is hosted elsewhere) and the ASP they’re renting from goes out of business, suddenly, all their software may be gone. That’s just what happened to some customers of Red Gorilla, who are now pretty pissed off. At the very least, a company going out of business should have to give enough lead time to allow companies to migrate to a different system. However, I think this may show up as one more reason why ASPs have trouble really catching on, long term.
