Business Architecture


Architecture, conceptual design and process automation

The first aspect to be considered is to relate the architecture of a given reality with its conceptual engineering. Conceptual engineering defines a problem’s architecture. To do so it is necessary to structure the ontology of that reality.

Architecture is used to define the concepts of a reality materializing them as solutions, within the possibilities of existing knowledge.

Redesigning the automation of a process implies restructuring its functionality in terms of effectiveness.

Effectiveness = Efficiency*Efficacy*Automation

The concept of effectiveness was discovered at the beginning of the seventies.

The first approach to effectiveness was adding efficiency plus efficacy to achieve the best possible result.

It was an empirical solution developing work processes optimizing the efficiency of the systems and the efficacy of humans.

In those times people were trained to develop the necessary skills to manage the working processes.

The results of this theory were inconsistent. “Change resistance” was the natural explanation for inadequate results.

The research of effectiveness, considered as a complex system, showed that its components should not be added, but integrated. Integration means conjunction. Conjunction, in mathematical terms, means multiplication.

This was the first approach to ontological analysis of working processes, integrating its three components, considered in those times as variables, which at the end were defined as the functions of a concept.

Analyzing a working process from an ontological point of view implies recognizing a different reality of workflow. It is much more flexible and offers much more possibilities than the empirical addition of efficacy + efficiency.

Peopleware: the integrator of hardware and software

Peopleware is defined by the structure of objects that individuals have in their minds which define the models they use when dealing with hardware and software at work. It  provides the necessary information to transform business architectures into operational business models.

Peopleware is what allows integrating hardware and software providing the true driver of the business model.

It is necessary to understand the organizational equilibrium laws, the natural organization and the object driven business model in order to manage peopleware.

When peopleware has been defined and adequate aesthetic use of software with a solid hardware will make business processes operational.

Peopleware is perhaps the most significant development to provide business operational solutions to companies.

It allows transforming administrative systems into adaptive systems to upgrade work processes when managing businesses as unified fields.

Peopleware provides the utility to operational business models allowing software to be user friendly (aesthetic for the user) and the functionality of hardware to become solid.

By definition, an approach that deals with the deepest human drivers to work is abstract. This abstraction needs to be apprehended in a reflection process to approach solutions for work processes.

Peopleware is business architecture applied to work process design. Therefore, it is for people who have a sound knowledge of the business that is being modeled.

Unicist Turnkey Solutions for End-Users in Business

From August 2012 on, only turnkey solutions will be provided to end users in business. This implies that the unicist ontology based and objects driven technologies will be only provided to Corporate and Professional Partners. No technologies will be sold to end-users.

This implies that end-users only need to manage the operation of the business objects / business units / business processes that are installed.

The partners who participate in the development of solutions will have the Unicist Knowledge Object Manager, the Unicist Fact-book and the Centralized Quality Assurance Services available.

As the Unicist Confederation deals with the adaptive aspects of businesses, the core aspect is the definition of the actual possibilities of a business defined in its diagnoses. Therefore we recommend that you access the book on “The Unicist Standard for Ontological Business Diagnostics” at the Unicist Library:

The Power of Intellectual Capital

Intellectual capital is what allows building the long term strategies of companies because it represents the intangible assets of an organization that allows generating differentiated added value in a market.

Assessing Intellectual Capital (IC) without diagnosing its nature always turns out to be a fallacious path. The unicist approach to IC building structures the concept of IC in order to define its nature and catalyze its development.

Intellectual capital is defined as the capital that is based on differential knowledge which can be materialized in human capital and objects.

This work presents the unicist ontology of Intellectual Capital as the integration of: Objects, Human Capital, Credibility and Innovation.

In this sense, human capital is represented by the individuals’ capacity to improve efficacy, synergy and the return of investment to a point where the strategic goals, the mission and the vision of the company are achieved or fulfilled
