More to be confirmed.

ASP offerings have been discussed in the risk management industry since the early days of the dotcom bubble, with the promise of creating new business models for the risk industry. On one hand, new technologies have seemed to offer economies of scale on shared processing platforms as well as a democratization of risk information. On the other hand issues of security, reliability, performance and over-sold technology have seemed to delay true industrial strength solutions. Going into 2004, are ASP solutions finally ready for primetime?

A cocktail reception will follow the program.
