The Concept of Internet as a Business Catalyst

One of the roles of Internet is to work as a business catalyst for the real world. It is a marketplace in itself, which works as a catalyst for the real world marketplace if certain conditions are given.

Internet as a Business CatalystThe purpose of Internet as a catalyst is to build a link between sellers and buyers. To achieve this goal it is necessary that the websites had demonstrated to have a gravitational influence on the market that is being influenced and the necessary critical mass to build a true complementation with the market.

This implies having a strong competitive capacity within the limits of a cooperative attitude with the potential customers.

Complementation building requires developing a functional link that is fully dependent on the value proposition that is made.

But at the same time it implies being able to build a personal link that deals with the personal benefits for the customers to achieve a true complementation, which requires that both the value proposition and the seller’s organization have been “bought”.

Unicist Object Driven Organization: A Result Driven Model

The unicist organizational approach is based on emulating nature in organizations. An extremely effective organization can be developed integrating both structural aspects that sustain evolution and incidental aspects that allow dealing with conjunctures. Emulating nature implies integrating the abstract apprehension of reality with the concrete operational design.

Object Driven OrganizationA unicist object driven organization is a result driven model that, according to the predefined objectives, designs the necessary processes and uses and reuses business objects to produce the expected results.

An object driven organization implies the development of a maximal strategy that includes the design of processes based on logical procedures to put them into action and also a shared vision that makes these processes consistent with the business.

A strategy becomes successful if the necessary organization and the adequate work processes have been defined. This fact is implicit in the use of the unicist object driven organizational model. It is a way to organize the work using “objects” within the processes maximizing the productivity and quality of work and minimizing costs.

The object driven organization enables focusing on the necessary processes to develop maximal strategies while the objects installed provide the framework for the minimum strategies.

The use of business objects structures the timing and synchronicity of business processes. It also provides the necessary acceleration to achieve the needed critical mass and the required speed to adapt to the environment.

Objects are productive units that have a concept, an added value, the necessary quality assurance and a methodology to ensure the minimum strategy.

Unicist Reliability System: An entropy inhibitor for teamwork

The respect and fulfillment of the agreements within groups on time

Groups make agreements to make work, research or learning more effective. These group agreements are not optional for their members. They are mandatory and cannot be renegotiated. Thus the developments of working agreements within the limits of the actual possibilities of a group are fostered. When group work turns to be reliable, results can be excellent.

Reliability is basic for any relationship and therefore necessary for any development. The commitment with the agreements implies the respect of others and ensures teamwork.

The fulfillment of the planned activities on schedule

Work, research and educative activities have been designed following the ontology and the corresponding taxonomy to sustain the efficacy of participants. The unfulfillment of the terms of delivery generates problems to participants. They will have to achieve the objectives in spite of not having the technology, tools, knowledge or information required to develop their activity.

The difficulty to produce results arises and so does the entropy of the system. This entropy includes the weakening of personal activities, the possibilities of an adequate teamwork and the bonds among the colleagues of the groups.

The delivery of the defined works on time

Work, research and learning activities imply the fulfillment of deliveries on a predefined schedule.

Communitarian responsibility and efficiency require the delivery on time. Time implies having the habit of reliability to develop value adding activities. Works have to include all the aspects that were defined that the participants would provide. Added value delivered out of time is a useless cost.

Adaptive solutions are the next step in business management

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

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.

Access a white paper on “Peopleware: The Integrator of Hardware and Software” at:
http://www.unicist.org/repo/#IT

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.

Work Process Automation, semi-automation and adaptation

The unicist work process design has become the core of business process management in order to take advantage of the new technological solutions produced in the field of software and hardware and integrating with innovative peopleware solutions to increase the production of results.

Marshall McLuhan said that the “medium is the message”. This also applies to IT solutions. That is why to design work processes it is necessary to build the integration of peopleware, hardware and software. It requires using the unicist double dialectical logic that allows integrating this triadic structure.

Different levels of efficacy require having a different level of automation. It becomes extremely difficult to install different levels of automation in organizations.

That is why there are usually different job levels that assume different levels of risk. Top management is based on adaptive systems while middle management is based on semi-automated systems.

Automation is, on the one hand, a job-killer but, on the other hand, it enhances the quality of human activity and allows developing business objects to ensure processes for business growth.

The integration of automation, semi-automation and adaptive systems is the core of the job oriented workstation design process after the general process has been solved.

This approach allows empowering the introduction of new technologies integrating them with the results that have to be produced and the peopleware that drives to them.

The Unicist Approach to Design Adaptive IT Systems

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

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.

The architecture and design of adaptive systems for work

Businesses are typical adaptive systems. We use the word “business” as a synonym of “work”. Businesses need to adapt to the environment in order to achieve the permanence of their transcendent goals and the personal goals of their participants.

Work as an Adaptive SystemAdaptive systems for work are entities that interact with the environment having the characteristics of a complex system but with an implicit and explicit duty to produce a predefined result.

Work is an environment that generates the need of adaptive systems in order to produce results and administrative systems to use and control the methods used.

The maximal strategy implies achieving or overcoming the planned results using procedures with the necessary flexibility and controlling them based on the feedback of the market.

The minimum strategy is based on using strict methods that use rigid procedures and intrinsic control systems based on accepted standards.

U-DROIDS as Adaptive Business Robots

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.
