The ASPnews Top 20 [original article]

The ASPnews Directory lists nearly 2,000 companies. But which are the bellwethers of the evolving industry? We've narrowed it down to the best of the best and the result is our listing of the Top 20 ASPs and the Top 20 ASP Infrastructure Providers.

All entries in the Top 20 lists are drawn from the ASP Industry Global 200 Directory, as published monthly by ASP News Review, the executive newsletter for the worldwide ASP and web services industry. The companies are selected based on several factors. Sheer size is just one parameter, which is weighted along with more qualitative assessments, such as respect among peers and talent to innovate within the ASP model as defined by ASPnews.
