A five level pyramid model of different types of Information Systems based on the information processing requirement of different levels in the organization. The first level represents transaction processing systems to process basic data. The second level represents office support systems to process information in office. The third level represents management information systems to process information by managers. The fourth level represents decision support systems to process explicit knowledge. The fifth level represents executive information systems to process tacit knowledge.
"A Computer(-Based) Information System is essentially an IS using computer technology to carry out some or all of its planned tasks. The basic components of computer based information system are:
(1) Hardware - these are the devices like the monitor, processor, printer and keyboard, all of which work together to accept, process, show data and information.
(2) Software - are the programs that allow the hardware to process the data.
(3) Databases - are the gathering of associated files or tables containing related data.
(4) Networks - are a connecting system that allows diverse computers to distribute resources.
(5) Procedures - are the commands for combining the components above to process information and produce the preferred output.
The first four components (hardware, software, database and network) make up what is known as the information technology platform. Information technology workers could then use these components to create information systems that watch over safety measures, risk and the management of data. These actions are known as information technology services." [Information systems. Wikipedia]

Network Configuration

Network configuration is a method of connecting computers among themselves, also known as a network topology. Three main types of connections are the most commonly used: Bus, Ring, Star. Before network design and purchase of necessary network equipment, it is necessary to consider all details, carefully examine the conditions, in which a given network will be exploited and certainly to draw a diagram of future network with all its parameters. The scheme can be designed manually on a paper, but it is better to apply a special software, such as ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software supplied with Computer Network Diagrams solution. Use of predesigned network icons from the libraries of Computer Network Diagrams solution, also built-in templates, samples and examples, is helpful to develop and represent network architecture, topology and design, and to make with ease professional-looking Network configuration diagrams and Network topology diagrams for LANs and WANs, to design Wired and Wireless computer communication networks, Mobile and Vehicle nets, IVR systems, etc. Read more
This enterprise architecture diagram sample was drawn on the base of the figure illustrating the webpage "Enterprise Architecture" from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) website.
"The USDA's Enterprise Architecture program strategically partners with all agencies to provide value to USDA's mission areas, business processes, and Information Technology (IT) capabilities.
Introduction.
The USDA Enterprise Architecture (EA) helps make sure information technology investments align with the mission and goals of the Department. It defines how information and technology should support USDA’s strategic goals and benefit the business.
Purpose.
The intent of the USDA Enterprise Architecture is to help make the information technology (IT) expenditures more effectively serve the mission and goals of the organization. Enterprise architecture defines how information and technology support USDA’s strategic planning to benefit our business. There are many ways to organize the information and diagrams that make up the architecture."
