What is Architecture Diagram? (Definition)

Architecture Diagrams are visualizations that show a coherent set of concepts applied to a system like an enterprise.

Often Architecture Diagrams show the 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.

Architecture diagrams benefit from it when they show specific concepts instead of general ones.
