A system is a set of IT resources that includes hardware, software, middleware, utilities, applications, and operating systems. A system can refer to a physical computer, or a logical component on a computer. For example, a software resource such as a database can be considered a system.
A business driver represents the load processed by an application, and is a consequence of the application's business purpose.
