The simplest model that describes the Structure and Behaviour of an Information System takes five objects:

For Structure:

  • Repositories, hold data permanent or temporarily, such as buffers, RAM, hard disks, cache, etc.
  • Interfaces, exchange information with the non-digital world, such as keyboards, speakers, scanners, printers, etc.
  • Channels, connect repositories, such as buses, cables, wireless links, etc. A Network is a set of logical or physical channels.

For Behaviour:

  • Services; provide value to users or to other services via messages interchange.
  • Messages; carries a meaning to users or services.
