What is Architecture?
In computer engineering, computer architecture is the conceptual design and fundamental operational structure of a computer system. It is a blueprint and functional description of requirements (especially speeds and interconnections) and design implementations for the various parts of a computer — focusing largely on the way by which the central processing unit (CPU) performs internally and accesses addresses in memory.
IT Service Management (ITSM) is a way of managing large scale technology systems by centering the management decisions around the customer's perspective of the contribution of IT and related systems to the actual business. It essentially is a framework that is used for the interaction of IT and business users.
