USWeb Inc has launched a set of outsourcing services to add to its internet software development and systems integration service, called Electronic Services. It enables USWeb to host applications and control legacy applications that are hosted on their customer’s systems. Chief technology officer Sheldon Laube says USWeb is not looking to host data centers, just the same sort of web-based applications that it has being developing and helping companies to set up. But it will also have the ability to manage customers’ systems remotely all the way through to the back end from its own systems. USWeb has also signed partnership deals with Cisco Systems Inc and Microsoft Corp whereby USWeb will standardize on the former’s IOS and Windows NT 5.0. Laube says the main reason USWeb opted for NT 5.0, which is yet to be released, is the Active Directory feature that enables access to multiple systems from a single point. Laube says USWeb is working closely with teams of Microsoft architects and will use the next beta of the product to launch Electronic Services in the first quarter of next year.
