The available IT technologies made the development of adaptive systems meaningful. The objective of building adaptive systems is to integrate software, hardware and peopleware in adaptive work or business processes to assure the quality of the results produced.
The development of this technology became possible because of the discovery of the unicist laws of evolution, the object driven organization that emulates the organization of nature and the drivers of human behavior that allow designing the necessary peopleware.
Before the existence of adaptive systems the solution was fully focused on the efficacy of individuals which increased the responsibility of the person who is doing a job. This forced them to consider all the details of the feedback from the environment which increased the probability of errors.
The catalyst of an adaptive IT system is its capacity to learn from the freed-back to improve its adaptive behavior. The entropy inhibitor of the system is given by its capacity to learn to ensure conjunctural adaptiveness.
Adaptiveness is based on the existence of drivers that make it possible. The level of the drivers is the following:
1) There are analogical drivers that are based on the recognition of patterns.
2) There are rule based drivers that include the preexisting and add rules that correspond to the activity.
3) There are empirical drivers that include the preexisting and add empirical information obtained using mathematical models.
4) There are objects based drivers that include the preexisting and add concept based objects as intrinsic adaptive systems.
The integration of the adaptive aspects with the operational and administrative aspects is necessary in order to make user oriented information systems.
The level of adaptiveness of a system has to be designed according to the characteristics of a work process.
Administrative and operational systems can be transformed into adaptive systems by adding and integrating an adaptive interface.
