Reviews and Testimonials

Cavalcanti presents a new interdisciplinary way of understanding the structure and dynamics of a company in the era of information technology that he calls the Architecture-Governance-Growth (AGG) Model. It is analogous to the Structure-Conduct Performance (SCP) paradigm of economics used in empirical market analysis, he says. Because the AGG model requires interdisciplinary studies, methods, and tools, he proposes another new model to this end, the Analyticsize-Integrate-Decide (AID) Model. His topics include the management view, the corporate architecture dimension, the concept of governance, the role of innovation management, and the essential trinity of ecosystem plus platform plus architecture.
