|technical system (SV-SMG)|
Describes a part of a product's software that is installed on one or several physical or virtual hosts.
A technical system is installed and administered as a whole. It is identified by a system ID (SID) or extended SID, a host, and an installation number. There are different technical system types, for example Application Server (AS) ABAP, AS Java, or TREX.
Technical systems are central elements when it comes to software component deployment and operational activities, such as monitoring and alerting.
