System Context Diagrams (SCDs) offer a high-level view of a system. It represents an entire system, as well as its boundaries and environment. SCDs illustrate the information flow between a system and other actors. It is most commonly used to highlight who or what may interact with a system in order for the desired outcome to be realised.
