What is an Architecture Diagram?

The architecture diagramcan help system designers and developers visualize the high-level, overall structure of their system or application, in order to ensure the system meets their users' needs. Using architecture diagrams, you can also describe patterns that are used throughout the design. It's somewhat like a blueprint that you use as a guide so that you and your colleagues can discuss, improve, and follow.
