The paper presents a business model for digital economy named 'always-on business'. Building on the literature review of IT-enabled business models, business continuity and system downtime, we conceptualise a systemic model that aims to describe a business in digital era by a set of key systemic dimensions (attributes) as defined by C.W. Churchman.
