Adaptive solutions are the next step in business management

Print Friendly

Adaptive IT solutions are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. Nowadays, there are multiple programming solutions available to sustain the unicist adaptive architecture. The solutions include aspect objects architecture with unicist logical inferences to manage adaptiveness.

Adaptive IT ArchitectureThe evolution of Information Technologies allowed integrating the adaptive aspects of business management in the operational systems of companies.
The integration of the unicist logical approach and the resulting business objects included in the business processes within an adaptive IT environment allows driving business processes to the next level.

To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes. This widened the possibilities of companies to expand the boundaries of their activities within an environment of assured quality.

The level of adaptiveness varies according to the needs of the system. There are four levels of adaptiveness that can be managed:

1) Analogical drivers

This level is based on the recognition of the significant behavioral patterns of the segments of a market.

2) Rules based drivers

This level is based on the use of analogical patterns and the logical rules defined by the fundamentals that influence the buying processes.

3) Empirical drivers

This level is based on the previous level and the integration of mathematical models to infer behavior based on the observable aspects of the fundamentals that participate in the buying processes.

4) Objects based drivers

This level is based on the previous level plus the use of conceptual commercial objects that work as interdependent drivers to influence the attitude of the buyers. The feedback of the market is defined by the results produced by these objects.

Implementation adaptive systems requires following a step by step approach. Most of the people need to learn to interact with the business environment instead of trying to push it.

IT Architecture: Using concepts as stem cells

Print Friendly

The function of stem cells in the human body is homologous to the function of concepts in the field of human actions. While stem cells can give rise to specialized cells and thus organs, essential concepts allow building unicist objects.

Essential ConceptUnicist objects are adaptive systems that have a concept and generate added value within a quality assurance system to fulfill the purpose of the concept. Unicist objects are interdependent entities that integrate a complex adaptive system.

The knowledge of the essential concepts is basic to build unicist objects because these objects are the materialization of a concept.

Under certain conditions, organs can be transplanted and this is also the case of unicist objects that can be replicated as long as they belong to homologous and analogous entities.

Objects are inserted into processes to produce specific results. The same way stem cells have the potential capacity to give birth to human organs, concepts can give birth to objects to produce results.

The knowledge of the Unicist Theory allows using a double dialectical approach to reality to emulate the organization of nature using an object driven organization.

Nature is organized by objects which can be observed in the ecosystem. The human body is an example of the organization of nature, where organs are homologous to unicist objects. That is why the transplantation of organs became possible.

While the structure of the different organs of the body derives from the stem cells, the unicist objects derive from the essential function of an entity that is defined by its concept.

Properties of Stem Cells and Concepts

Stem Cells

Concepts

They are unspecialized They are universal
They are capable of self-renewal They are timeless
They can give rise to specialized cells They allow building operational functions

Thus, stem cells and concepts are homologous. While essential concepts allow the construction of objects to insert into human adaptive processes, stem cells allow the building of organs that work as unicist objects to sustain the functionality of a complex adaptive system such as the human body.

The concept of IT architecture is its “stem cell”

The ontology of the functional IT architecture is based on the integration of the elements that are included in software building.

The purpose of IT architecture is to fulfill the mission of the system that is being built. The mission implies following a concept and generating an added value, having an adequate quality assurance that makes the mission reliable.

When the concept is not shared, there is no possibility to develop a structural solution for a system. The concept represents the vision of the activity of the system and needs to be apprehended taking the necessary time to do so.

The active function, which defines the aesthetics of the system, is given by the information that is managed by the system. It needs to be based on the true “business model” because it has to satisfy its needs.

The business model is provided by the business architectural approach. Information must include adaptive aspects in order to manage the feed-back from the environment and administrative aspects to ensure the operation and control.

Peopleware: a breakthrough of the Unicist Approach

The energy conservation function is defined by the technology which sustains its solidity and is integrated by software, hardware and peopleware.

Synthesis

Functional IT Architecture includes the use of software objects to build a system that has the capacity to adapt to the environment reus-ing the designed objects and just changing the processes in which they are immersed.

The design of the objects needs to be in accordance with the charac-teristics of the adaptive aspects of the system and the possibilities defined by the available technology. This approach allows simplify-ing the processes and minimizing the maintenance costs.

The Unicist Approach to Design Adaptive IT Systems

Print Friendly

Adaptive systems are systems that have been designed to interact with the external and internal environment. To be able to organize by objects it is necessary to use both adaptive and administrative systems to organize the work processes.

Adaptive systems are necessary to expand the boundaries of work. Thus, continuous improvement, CRM and project management are paradigmatic cases of adaptive systems in work processes.

Adaptive systems are necessary to provide the maximal strategy based on their flexibility and feedback capacity while administrative systems are necessary to establish a secure operational and control activity.

The use of adaptive systems in the company has been disregarded in the past because the control and operational activities prevailed over the market growth and competition.

The Unicist Standard provides the necessary structure to design adaptive systems where they are needed.

Logical Management Tools: Unicist Process Modeling using Genexus

Print Friendly

The unicist technology for Business Modeling allows modeling business concepts and transforms them into operational procedures.

The Unicist Business Modeler uses the Unicist Ontological Algorithms that have been researched and developed, the Unicist Standard Language and the Facts of an activity to define the necessary processes and objects to develop a business.

It is a conceptual design method to approach businesses, modeling their nature and processes in order to be able to develop diagnoses, build strategies and design their organization. The Unicist Factbook provides the procedure to develop the descriptive, logical and causal diagnoses.

These three activities, diagnosing, strategy building and organizing, require having a model to define the validity of their outputs.

The integration of the collected facts with the information of the unicist algorithms using the Unicist Standard Language allows defining Unicist Business Models.

Organizational Design

Organizational design implies being able to integrate hardware, software and peopleware in an effective way. Effectiveness implies the integration of the efficacy of people with the efficiency of the system that has been designed.

The unicist ontology discovered for organizational design allowed defining the structure of the organization process to be used when a business starts or a big change is being implemented.

The ontology integrates the natural organization with the efficacy of the individuals involved and the efficiency of the system designed to ensure a minimum strategy.

The Natural Organization implies the integration of the natural business model of the activity with the Client/Patient Centered Management model and the Personalized Organization model that are possible in the culture.

Although the structure of CCM/PCM and PO are universal, their way to use them in a specific culture varies according to the dominant myths of the environment.

U-DROIDS as Adaptive Business Robots

Print Friendly

The discovery and development of the unicist logical approach to business made the development of the unicist objects driven technologies possible to manage businesses as adaptive systems. Both technologies provided the basic tools to develop business robots that allow introducing adaptive automation in value generating processes to manage the adaptive aspects of businesses.

U-droidsThere exist three paradigmatic productive robots:

  • Autopilots
  • Industrial Robots
  • Unicist Business Robots

Unicist Business Robots

Business robots are focused on managing the adaptive systems of an organization in order to ensure the achievement of the objectives that have been established.

1) The U-DROID was developed to:

Deal with minimum and defensive strategies using business objects to develop their actions.

Develop energy conservation functions of the maximal strategies.

2) The U-DROID is the first business robot that was designed to manage adaptive business processes. It has two versions:

  • U-DROID for businesses
  • U-DROID as a professional assistant

U-DROID for Businesses

Maximal vs. Minimum Strategies

Maximal strategies are those actions that expand the boundaries of an activity while they count with the safe environment generated by the minimum strategy.

Minimum strategies are those actions that happen within the boundaries of an activity that provide the necessary complement to sustain a status quo.

Defensive vs. Expansive Strategies

The U-DROID was designed to develop defensive strategies and sustain expansive strategies. Although one of its main uses is the expansion of the commercial network, this expansion only provides the basics to build or empower commercial relationships.

The Use of Business Objects

The U-DROID was designed to develop business objects driven processes. These business objects include:

Characteristic

Function

Action

Operational Objects
Functional Objects
Systemic Objects
Knowledge Objects (*)
Driving Objects
Inhibiting Objects
Entropy Inhibiting
Catalyzing Objects
Semiotic Objects
Semantic Objects
Commercial Objects
Learning Objects

(*) One of the functions of the U-DROID is to provide the necessary knowledge needed to make decisions. This implies giving automatic access to the knowledge objects reservoirs that correspond to the specialty.

Peopleware: the core of the operational business models

Print Friendly

Peopleware can be defined, in plain language, as the structure of attitudes that influence individuals’ activities.

Unicist PeoplewareSoftware can be observed because it establishes the interface of individuals with an activity.

Hardware can be perceived because the evident appearances of hardware can be observed but its functionality can be perceived through the possibilities it offers to software.

But peopleware is the deepest aspect of human activity and can only be intuited and validated using destructive and non-destructive pilot tests.

Peopleware defines attitudes. Therefore it deals with the deepest approach to individual behavior that deals with the human capacity of apprehending nature.

This implies entering the field of the ontology of human behavior, the natural organization, the laws of organizational equilibrium and the apprehension of objects that emulate the organization of nature.

Organizational equilibrium is the purpose of peopleware. It has to be considered that organizational equilibrium needs to vary depending on the cycle of a business.

When growth becomes necessary, centrifugal forces need to prevail. But centripetal forces need to prevail when profit improvement needs to be achieved.

SMS: Profit from the unicist approach to message building

Print Friendly

The purpose of a message is to deliver information. This purpose is achieved by adding value to the receiver and the energy conservation function is given by the credibility of the message. A message is an object that needs to be carefully defined if the message has multiple users or receivers. When it is a univocal message the design has to respond to the possibilities of the receiver to decode the information included.

Unicist Ontogenetic Map of a MessageThis post is about the nature of messages and an example of how to build a message in an e-mail. We recommend apprehending its structure and then applying it when you prepare messages for your SMS.

Messages are naturally segmented because value can only be added to those who need the information that is being provided.

That is why the first question that has to be defined is the segmentation of the receivers of a message.

When developing a mass media, this segmentation defines the editorial line in which all the messages have to fit.

The segmentation to be used is the functional segmentation because it is the segmentation that synthesizes the operational segments to be considered.

The Structure of a Message

The maximal strategy of a message is driven by the value it adds and the minimum strategy is given by its credibility.

The value added allows the message to be remembered. Data provided to someone who has no need for it cannot be stored in the long term memory in a meaningful way. It might be recalled but as it is meaningless it can not be used.

Information without credibility cannot be integrated in any case but when it is based on a stimulus of human weaknesses. Gossip is an example of this case. But the lack of credibility generates doubt in the mind of the receiver and doubt provokes inaction.

Using the fundamentals of words to solve problems of adaptive systems

Fundamentals of Words Synthetic / ambiguous language is only necessary to deal with adaptive systems. In this case the logic of communication processes has to be followed.

The logic of a communication process has been discovered in anthropological researches and studies by different psychological schools. It can be synthesized in four steps:

  1. Rituals – Protocol to begin with a communication.
  2. Conflict Management – Dealing with the hidden objective of a communication.
  3. Activity – Developing the task implicit in the communication.
  4. Pastime – Obtaining the benefit for the activity that has been done (Good-bye included).

The unicist logical approach to adaptive business processes

Print Friendly

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.

Adaptive IT ArchitectureThe 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.

Pragmatism is the key to deal with complex adaptive systems

Print Friendly

The unicist approach to complexity sciences is a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach. This approach establishes the framework for the research on complexity sciences but also for the unicist logical approach that uses the conclusions of the researches in their application in the field of complex adaptive systems.

Framework of the Unicist ApproachIt was developed in order to provide a specific methodology to deal with complex adaptive systems in order to avoid the extension of the use of methodologies that correspond to the field of researching systemic aspects of reality.

This drove towards the integration of a pragmatic, structural and functionalist approach to research in the field of complexity sciences that it the framework used in all the researches done at The Unicist Research Institute.

Pragmatism

The research in the field of complex adaptive systems does not allow artificial experiments because they change the conjunction of elements that integrate them.

Therefore a pragmatic approach that integrates practice and theory is needed. This implies that complexity science requires the integration of reliable knowledge (theory) with experiencing (practice) in order to define the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word pragmatic, we strongly recommend researching the concept “pragmatism” on the Internet.

Functionalism

Complex adaptive systems need to be approached based on the emergence they generate. A functionalist approach is needed to apprehend the functionality of the system.

Apprehending the functionality implies integrating the purpose with is implicit in its emergences with the active function and the energy conservation function. This allows defining the functionality of a complex adaptive system.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word functionality, we strongly recommend researching the concept “functionalism” on the Internet.

Structuralism

A complex adaptive system has, by definition, open boundaries. That is why the integration with the restricted and wide contexts is required.

Therefore a structural approach is needed to integrate the system with its context and the environment to make it reasonable, understandable and predictable.

If you are not aware of the meaning of the word structural, we strongly recommend researching the concept “structuralism” on the Internet.
