The rapidly increasing complexity of information systems has prompted considerable interest in the application of artificial intelligence (AI) to the various components that compose these systems. As the intelligence of these components increases, each component becomes capable of making decisions that affect the overall performance of the system. The integration and coordination of autonomous decision-making components is a fundamental research issue in the design of intelligent information architectures to support business process reengineering. A critical factor affecting the integration and coordination of autonomous decision-making components is the coordination structure. This research presents a conceptual model of an adaptive information architecture capable of traversing the continuum between centralized and decentralized coordination structures.
