Collaboration Diagram

Definition - What does Collaboration Diagram mean?

A collaboration diagram is a type of visual presentation that shows how various software objects interact with each other within an overall IT architecture and how users can benefit from this collaboration. A collaboration diagram often comes in the form of a visual chart that resembles a flow chart. It can show, at a glance, how a single piece of software complements other parts of a greater system.

Techopedia explains Collaboration Diagram

In many cases, a collaboration diagram will show how a system made up of individual software pieces works in real time. In other cases, the flow chart objects may represent a more abstract interaction, such as a general cause-and-effect or event-driven collaboration that may happen over time.

Generally, the labels on a collaboration diagram are determined by the needs of the user base. Someone creating this kind of resource may use actual file names, generic phrases representing the function of programs, or even customized icons to show how pieces of a system work together. Customized collaboration diagrams can help business leaders and others to see more about what’s going on within a complex IT system and how software interactions work.
