(New York, NY - January 7, 2002) - INT Media Research, a division of INT Media Group, Incorporated (Nasdaq: INTM) today announced the release of its latest report. "2002 ASP Industry Insight: The Rise of the Provider Web" is an in-depth report providing insight into what direction successful ASPs will take in 2002. The results of the report point toward the continuing evolution of the ASP industry in years to come. The report is available at INT Media Research (,3008,2330135_1,00.html) for U.S. $395.

According to Dan Muse, managing editor of and co-author of the report, "While the ASP market has suffered its share of bad news over the last year or so, we believe that the model is stronger than ever. In this report, we wanted to do three things: take a look back at the history of the industry; survey ASPs and related companies to offer a snapshot of how things look right now; and, most importantly, present a clear vision of where the market for hosted applications is headed."

"2002 ASP Industry Insight: The Rise of the Provider Web" analyzes the behavior and trends of the ASP industry over the past few years, finding that ASPs have experienced a rapid rise and a sudden shakeout, and are now regrouping amid fear and hesitation from the investor community and industry watchers. The report reveals that ASPs, now more than ever, must minimize their margin for error in their strategic decision making in order to survive.
