Developing ontologies to design Information Technologies

To design adaptive information systems it is necessary to know their ontologies. To do so an individual needs to reflect in order to make the conceptual design. This conceptual design is in fact the strategy to allow the system to behave in an adaptive way.

The purpose of the unicist reflection is to adapt to reality in order to influence it. In plain language, this influential action is called strategy.

Reflection is a necessary path towards strategy when there is an ambiguous context. When there is no ambiguity, there is no need to develop strategies. Action plans are the way to influence reality.

We define reflection as an individual’s apprehension of the structure of a reality to find ways to influence it. Individuals face either simple or complex problems.

The energy needed to influence complex problems is extremely higher than the one needed to influence simple problems.

Cause-effect analysis suffices to solve simple problems. Consistent thinking is the functional tool to solve a simple problem.

But when we face complexity, which necessarily includes bi-univocal cause-effect relations, it is necessary to go beyond a thinking process and approach reality reflecting on it.

The ontology of reflection defines its nature. The unicist ontology describes the structure of reflection. To understand reflection it is necessary to apprehend its purpose: Exert influence on the environment.

Influence building implies an effort to find a path toward influential thinking and reflecting on reality.

Comparison of the ontological approaches to business

Ontological approaches to business were rediscovered when technology made the management of complex adaptive systems possible.

Stephen Hawking announced, many years ago, that the XXI century would be the era of complexity.

The ontological approach to complex adaptive systems is making it possible.

The development and use of the Unicist Ontology, its algorithms and objects started in 1976. Its objective was to increase the value generated by human adaptive systems and adaptive processes.

The expansion of the use of ontology included its application in the development of complex information systems and artificial intelligence.

The development of multiple languages to manage ontological approaches, such as the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the Unicist Standard Language (USL), makes their universal expansion possible.

The Unicist Ontology for Innovation Marketing

Innovative products or services are those that are beyond the existing boundaries of a prospect. They cannot be bought; all what is outside the boundaries of a person can be admired but can only be bought after the person included it into its area of comfort or safety.

To sell innovative products or services it is necessary to evaluate if the time is given to launch a fluent expanding business.

Innovations need to have objective and subjective added value for the buyers and, by definition, they need to have a superior functionality or provide more power to the buyers.

The adoption of innovations requires that the products or services need to provide some of these alternatives: more pleasure, more power, easier work or more functionality. Optimal innovations integrate all the aspects.

Inventions, new design or discoveries need to be confronted with this analysis before defining if they will be launched or not.

If the moment hasn’t come, there is a possibility that an innovation works as a catalyst for other products. In this case it is not a business in itself but sustains other businesses.
