A Self-Organising Environment for Evolving Business Activities

Abstract

In this paper we are concerned with providing support for business activities in moving from value chains to value networks. We describe a fully distributed P2P architecture which reflects the dynamics of business processes that are not governed by a single organisation. The temporary virtual networks of long-term business transactions are used as the building block of the overall scale-free business network. The design is based on dynamically formed permanent clusters resulting in a topology that is highly resilient to failures (and attacks) and is capable of reconfiguring itself to adapt to changes in business models and respond to global failures of conceptual hubs. This fosters an environment where business communities can evolve to meet emerging business opportunities and achieve sustainable growth within a digital ecosystem.
