The deal gives DoubleClick greatly expanded reach into Internet commerce research, a weakness of the company to date. It also underscores the trend among online ad networks--including DoubleClick arch rival 24/7 Media Inc.--to morph into full-service e-business consultancies. @Plan's clients include Microsoft Corp. and Young & Rubicam Inc.
