Most modern business theorists see a continuum with pure service on one terminal point and pure commodity good on the other terminal point. 2 Most products fall between these two extremes.

Comparing the configuration of existing business services to those created in their image for redundancy or migration purposes is easy. Understanding the configuration prior to initiating a project is also straight-forward.
