RE: System Specs
I have been given the task of writing a high-level System Spec for our
company. This will be a new journey for me, as I've never written a spec
before, but I'm actually looking forward to the experience (sort of).
In my understanding, system specifications relate more to the technology (platforms, servers, databases, hardware, operating systems, interfaces) of a software application than Software Requirements Specifications (SRS), which are related to Use Cases, which evolve into business, user, functional and technical specifications/requirements for software development, which in turn all make up the SRS.
A system spec is fairly static, more like a list. One of mine also includes these headings: Servers, Operating Systems, Databases, Firewalls & Routers, Access & Control, Monitoring, Auditing & Reporting, Data & Site Recovery.

Is fearr socrú dá dhonacht ná dlí dá fheabhas.
It's better to solve the problem than to improve the law.
