As the Internet is transforming the global information economy, the Telecollaboration (TC) system services are moving at a transitional pace dictated by market forces. However, the pace is turning out to be a lot slower than expected. This has prompted us now to approximate and synthesize the design concepts of building a scalable biomimetic system manager for a telecollaboration service taxonomy. Thus, it is expected that if there is more correlation across the design concepts of the system manager, the greater will be the likelihood of demonstrating a rescue-like operation for humans in this new taxonomy. The main goal of this paper is initially to over view the bio-swarm behaviours of insect colonies to embrace a notional computing architecture that enables an individual TC service entity. It is important that these behaviours along with the proposed self-x autonomic functions offered by the system manager need to be pursued, and indeed continue, in a highly correlated way to fulfil the opportunistic functional tasks related to the discovery and delivery of Telecollaboration services. In this context next, we attempt to study the significant usability benefits of qualitative and quantitative execution pressures related to the implementation of these functions. This includes a better understanding of the constraints of implementation of these functions to deal with complex usability performance baselines. Finally, we give an updated foresight of process deployment strategies through a group of highly diverse and autonomous objects called Teleholons whilst exploiting the role of these self-x autonomic functions.
