An Architecture Diagram is a visualization that shows a coherent set of concepts applied to a system like an enterprise.
Often an Architecture Diagram is showing structure with general concepts, like relationships between processes, applications, data objects and servers.
In this case, the general concepts are processes, applications, data objects and servers.
These general concepts themselves are elements in other, more specific concepts, like cloud computing, self-service, CRM or one-stop -shopping.
The conceptual coherence between general concepts is often not shown or clear.
An architecture diagram benefits from it when it shows specific concepts instead of general ones.
The architecture diagram on this page shows specific concepts.
The concepts chosen on an architecture diagram should be derived from or justified by the strategy of an organization.
One of the great benefits of creating an architecture diagram is that it supports to design of sustainable solutions.
Dragon1 supports you to work on the platform in a repository application and in a designer application part of the enterprise architecture software. Dragon1 also supports you to work with .dragon1 Files.
Any XLSX or CSV file and any data in the Dragon1 repository can be converted into, imported and exported as .dragon1 Files. Below is an example screenshot of a .dragon1 File.
Architecture Diagrams can contain structured data from relational databases (in rows and columns or object-oriented nodes) or semi-structured data (such as XML, JSON, CSV and logs) or any unstructured data (like PDFs, documents and email) and also binary data.
The dynamic example is repeated below as a static diagram. It is an effective way of visualizing this concept. It is a solution reference architecture diagram.
