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.

As such, the on-demand integration of software and capabilities might benefit from an outsourcing paradigm — described here as composition as a service.
