ASP model is key for buyside desktop?

One thing Gartner says of the recent RoyalBlue and LatentZero news…

We believe future growth will come from small firms and hedge funds gaining OMS capabilities delivered via an application service provider (ASP) or software-as-a-service model, rather than installed software. As of mid-2006, LatentZero did not offer its product in an ASP model. Therefore, it is likely that this acquisition stemmed from a lack of sufficient future growth opportunities at LatentZero, given low or slow sales increases for its traditional product offering.

I’m not convinced majority of buyside are against an installed app per-se, providing it is easy install and subsequent update, and does not burden them with huge requirements for ‘local’ support.

  1. Think this is for smaller firms. nCan’t see the tier1/2 Funds going for this solution. But those Hedge Funds & smaller Funds that can neither afford the expense let along the drain on IT resource, could be a good solution.
