Outsourcing Using the Internet
Say Goodbye to the Sacred Cows
More and more small and medium companies are increasingly turning to the web for outsourcing.
Why buy software when you can rent over the Net?
Do You Want to Get a Sense of the Future is Going Now?
Ask yourself this, what are you in the business of doing? What is your core function, reason for being?
Then ask yourself this, what could you outsource in the future. What non-core, non-vital support functions could be handled by the Internet? Think ahead, areas such as information technology, human resource management, payroll, accounting, taxes, training, etc.
The applications are endless. The Net is exploding with services that provide a customized solution that is smarter, cost effective and more efficient means. Remember, when the rules of the game change, everyone starts back at zero. Your past means nothing.
In other words, there are no sacred cows.
The Bus is leaving and you have a Decision to Make.
- You can watch it go by.
- You can get out of its way.
- You let it run you over and become "road kill".
- You can jump on the bus, ride it.
- Or, you can drive the bus. Take charge of your destiny and shape it before someone else shapes it for you.
Service Providers ( ASPs ) are the Way of the Future|
Basically, an application service provider develops software and rents
it to you either directly or indirectly.
Say goodbye to installation hassles, upgrades and constant
All you need is an Internet connection and a Web browser.
ASPs are also affordable ( some are even free ).
There are some worries about security. Offsite storage of data
focused on delivering event-triggered, time-sensitive notifications via a range of devices: the telephone, cell phone, pagers, email, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA's) and other emerging Internet appliances. iPing provides a completely outsourced solution for business clients in strategic vertical markets.

administration, maintenance and risk.
Remote, Web-based data backup and storage solutions.
Virus protection also!
There are many Web-based options available, but for business use, there is one standout
- the @Backup service offered by SkyDesk. @Backup is particularly notable due to its munitions-grade, 56-bit file
encryption and Diffie-Hellman key connection encryption. Other key features include assured file
integrity during interrupted data transmission, multiple file transfer (most free Web storage solutions permit only
one at a time), scheduling of automatic backups, on-demand backups, and something remarkably clever called Sub-file
Incremental technology, which reduces connection times by transmitting only changes and additions to files, and
enables users to access a 90-day archive of multiple file versions. To also save transmission time, files are
compressed on the userís PC before transmission. And you can access your data on any Web-connected computer, so itís
like having a remote data drive no matter where you go.
Prices for @Backup start at $99.95 per year for 100 megabytes of storage space and go up to $299.95 per year for
500 megabytes. Thereís a 30-day free trial available.
