Introduction to the use of Ontology in business

When you are dealing with business growth you are in the middle of a complex problem that has open boundaries and the actions of the potential clients and the competitors require dealing with it as an adaptive system. That is what ontology is for.

To approach complex problems, such us growth, we invite you to understand the different ontological approaches and the functionality of the unicist ontology.

Philosophical ontology (from the Greek ὄν, genitive ὄντος: “of that which is”, and -λογία, -logia: science, study, theory) is the study of the nature of being, existence or reality as such, as well as the basic categories of being and their relations.

In computer science and information science, an ontology is a formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts. It is used to reason about the entities within that domain, and may be used to describe the domain. In theory, an ontology is a “formal, explicit specification of a shared conceptualization”.

Unicist Ontology is the formal representation of the nature of an adaptive system (i.e.: businesses) and the nature of its dynamics based on the ontogenetic intelligence of nature and the laws of evolution. It is used to manage adaptive systems and adaptive processes.

Unicist Ontology uses unicist business objects and algorithms to manage and influence adaptive systems in business. Business growth is just a field where this approach is necessary.

Comparison of the ontological approaches to business

Ontological approaches to business were rediscovered when technology made the management of complex adaptive systems possible.

Stephen Hawking announced, many years ago, that the XXI century would be the era of complexity.

The ontological approach to complex adaptive systems is making it possible.

The development and use of the Unicist Ontology, its algorithms and objects started in 1976. Its objective was to increase the value generated by human adaptive systems and adaptive processes.

The expansion of the use of ontology included its application in the development of complex information systems and artificial intelligence.

The development of multiple languages to manage ontological approaches, such as the Web Ontology Language (OWL) and the Unicist Standard Language (USL), makes their universal expansion possible.
