IBM's e-Business on Demand strategy has encountered a big problem - the business applications are not yet there to support utility computing.

IBM defines e-business on demand as "the delivery of integrated processes, applications and infrastructure over the network, as a service, with both business and IT functionality", so that the global data network is the business infrastructure.

- The applications themselves are not architected to fully support on-demand
delivery
