Architecture - Technical and Applications


The term 'technical architecture', refers to the core technologies deployed across a computing resource / network. For example an organisation's technical architecture may comprise UNIX servers running on RISC hardware, Windows® NT servers running on Intel CISC processors; over a 100BASE-T network using CAT 5 cabling.

The application's architecture can refer to a range of components but, in the corporate environment, identifies the foundational database upon which the majority of business applications are built. For example an organisation's applications architecture could be Oracle relational database (running on the UNIX servers identified above in the technical architecture) for business applications, and Microsoft Office® for all office and inter-organisation communications.
