Architectures and Models


Architectures and models are visual representations of objects within a framework or diagram, such as mappings of software or systems architecture, and the relationships between these objects.

With architectures and models, users are able to better understand how objects are put together, and the complex components and connections within their systems and subsystems. They can then use this information to map out proposed updates and variations to their systems, and see the effects of different adjustments.
