Peopleware: the Revolution in IT Architecture Building

The technological evolution of IT made the integration of hardware, software with peopleware possible.

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

Software 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 unicist 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.

Pragmatism is the key to deal with complex adaptive systems

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.

Business Modeling requires having a Strategy

Specific strategies are based on the input provided by the wide context scenarios and the restricted context scenarios.

These scenarios have to provide the information of the gravitational forces that influence the specific activity, the possibilities for developing them, the catalyst that may exist and the inhibitors that need to be avoided or accepted as limits for the strategy building.

An organization or individual is equilibrated when maximal strategies are being developed while minimum strategies are built to ensure the survival.

Maximal strategies are designed to expand the boundaries of an individual or organization, while minimum strategies happen within the boundaries of an organization.

That is why maximal strategies require dealing with uncertainty and risks and only a conscious knowledge of the unified field that integrates the wide context, the restricted context, the specific strategy and the architecture of the solution allows managing it.

To deal with maximal strategies it is necessary to have a high level of consciousness that allows dealing with backward-chaining thinking that allows envisioning the solution.

Backward-chaining thinking implies approaching a strategy with a hypothetical solution and beginning a falsification and validation process that allows building a final solution.

Minimum strategies are those that happen within the known boundaries of an individual’s or organization’s activity working in a context of certainty.

Unicist Double Dialectics to design IT Architecture

The Unicist Double Dialectics describes the human rational approach when an individual emulates the functionality of nature.

The unicist thinking process is basic to influence complex realities. The access to double dialectical thinking implies both a change in the paradigms to approach reality and exert influence on it and a consistent learning process.

Human mind is based on a “dualistic” processor; neurons are either “on” or “off”.

The axiom on which unicist theory is based states that every “object” of reality has an implicit or explicit purpose, an active function to put it into action and an energy conservation function to maintain it stable. These three components are integrated in its oneness.

The understanding of a reality begins with the discovery of its purpose. After the purpose has been approached it is possible to build the first dialectical pair.

The active function is the antithesis that puts the purpose into action while its implicit utopia tries to change it. If there was no entropy inhibiting element, this situation would evolve into a dysfunctional result regarding the original purpose.

After the first dialectical pair functions, the second dialectic is born. The purpose is sustained by the energy conservation function. This function is a complementary element that limits the effects of the active function to secure the maintenance of the objectives implicit in the purpose.

The integration of these two dialectics (“purpose-active function” and “purpose-energy conservation function”) describes the key to apprehend the dynamics of a reality.

Unicist Cybernetics applied to Businesses

Unicist Cybernetics defines the work model to deal with organizations that are modeled integrating both enterprise and entrepreneur driven aspects. Unicist cybernetics defines the essential structure of these business processes.

Unicist Cybernetics defines the architecture of complex systems beginning with the unicist ontological structure and ending with the operational aspects necessary to produce predefined results.

It is a technology that includes: complexity science research, complex (adaptive) systems design, unicist extreme design methodology, object driven organization, unicist ontological modeling and artificial intelligence to design adaptive systems.

Unicist cybernetics is integrated within the unicist ontology based technologies to design adaptive systems to produce results.

The unicist ontology of cybernetics defines how the work of a business has to be organized in order to achieve the business that has been defined in the business model and its corresponding strategy.
