DTM, Sprint Canada Provide Nexxlink ASP Solutions

[Montreal, CANADA] Nexxlink, the new ASP division of DTM Information Technology Group, has inked a strategic marketing alliance with Sprint Canada.

The agreement details the sale and promotion of Nexxlink's computing solutions, including the computing infrastructure outsourcing and hosting of applications in ASP mode (Application Service Provider), network integration, PC infrastructure services, and the development of Web and e-commerce solutions.

Under the agreement, Sprint Canada will include Nexxlink in its Solutions Alliance program and both corporations will work jointly to increase each other's visibility with their respective customer base.

Through the relationship, Nexxlink will gain valuable exposure to Sprint Canada's vast client base with potential to sell, install, and deploy its services and products.

"The ASP phenomenon is expected to show substantial growth in the near future," said Robert Carignan, managing vice president, Sales and Marketing, Eastern Canada at Sprint Canada, "and we want to be in the forefront of providing this kind of innovative, value-add service to our business customers."

Well-known research firms such as Gartner Group and Forrester estimate that the ASP services market could top US $20 billion in North America by 2003.

Giga Information Group even predicts that by 2004, 75 percent of the applications provided for small and medium-sized businesses will be hosted by ASPs.

A Canadian pioneer in the ASP industry, Nexxlink provides computing infrastructure outsourcing services running on a thin client platform and accessible from a state-of-the-art Internet Data Center.

Nexxlink provides hassle-free computing service for a predictable monthly fee -- its solutions include the latest applications, an employee portal (B2E), an Intranet network, Web and e-commerce solutions, hosting, Windows-based workstations, integration, and 24-hour-a-day support.
