System architecture diagrams

If you’re developing software, deploying it in large-scale environments is risky. Managing data, visualizing complex business practices, and maintaining and upgrading systems is also difficult. But all of this can be handled with a system landscape. This visualization of various interconnected systems and environments can be used to develop, test, and deploy software or manage business processes. It can even be used for disaster recovery and backup solutions.

By visualizing something as complex as a large system, you can make something challenging easy to understand and manage, and identify risks and opportunities for improvement.
