The site at www.oracle.com/ihost brings together independent software vendors, application service providers, Internet infrastructure providers and system integrators into an Oracle-based online partner community to locate resources. It is a key element of Oracle's business strategy and while the concept of hosting applications over the Internet is not a new one, a company spokesman said the market is still nascent. The spokesman pointed to a Morgan Stanley Dean Witter survey of 152 CIOs which found that 61 per cent will consider buying software on a rented basis and 26 per cent are ready to do this in a bid to reduce costs.
