To fully understand business and technology integration and solve its numerous problems especially within the context of increasing technology content in any business solution with the ever-increasing networked business world, he had to develop a new methodology primarily out of his consulting projects by extending an existing value-chain model (called Full Value Chain Model) and an IT networking model (called 12-Layer Business/Technology Model) since traditional methodologies are not adequate. He has successfully deployed the methodology in all of his business segments besides consulting.
