The Business of Systems Integration

This chapter discusses the issue of the changing boundaries of system integration competencies between different actors. It is argued that many complex, knowledge-intensive innovations are not only systemic in the sense of requiring many components and interactions, but they must also be analysed as a situation where final demand requires a bundling of goods and services. Demand therefore must be analysed as an integrated set of goods and services. A multi-sectoral comparison is made, as the bundling of goods and services is visible in such diverse areas as building and construction, health care management, biotechnology, and telecommunication infrastructures.

Keywords:   knowledge-intensive innovation, product building, service bundling, capabilities, demand
