Understanding reusable software and assets within and among multiple organizations' system infrastructures can be challenging. IT systems might be widely distributed, and interconnections can be complicated. Ever-evolving computing technologies reduce an organization's in-house expertise for reusing software, even when leveraging software systems within its own firewalls. As such, the on-demand integration of software and capabilities might benefit from an outsourcing paradigm — described here as composition as a service.
