Unicist business architecture is not only a functional architecture, but a structural functionalist approach to businesses.
This is a structural approach because it deals with businesses considered as adaptive systems, which are integrated by interdependent elements that are approached based on their ontological structure.
It is functional because it follows the same ontology of functionality as does functional architecture.
The purpose of unicist business architecture is to define a business model. It implies seeking for an organization by results which is integrated by a market orientation, a business orientation and an orientation towards the use value of products. The purpose has to ensure the utility of the architecture.
The unified field of the business has to be apprehended in order to define the complementation and supplementation between the elements that integrate it. The organization by results needs to be sustained by a strategy that includes both the minimum and the maximal strategies.
The active function, which provides the aesthetics of the structure, is defined by the hyperrealism of the model, which includes the emulation of reality as a business, the functional reality of the elements of the organization and the essential reality of the unified field.
This allows developing a simple manageable model that defines the architecture of the business at a structural level.
NOTE: The Unicist Research Institute was the pioneer in using the unicist logical approach in complexity science research and became a private global decentralized leading research organization in the field of human adaptive systems. It has an academic arm and a business arm.
