This paper embraces the e‐business model concept as the unit of analysis for investigating the ASP market. It develops three constructs of the ASP business model: strategic positioning; product/service portfolio; and customer value proposition. Using a case study method, it discusses the findings from four ASP firms; each having attempted to develop a unique ASP business model. The findings suggest the ASP business model is fundamentally flawed as ASP firms fail to provide the customer with an attractive value proposition.
