departmental computer

A department computer refers to the internal level of the IT company structure and is assigned to the department level of a company.

A departmental computer is a computer that, when used commercially, supports the workstations of a company's own departments, such as accounting, warehousing, development, or production.

Departmental computers are often classified as midrange computers, with performance between that of mainframes and workstation computers. Historically, terminal networks were used with the terminals connected at the departmental level, which were subsequently replaced by workstation computers in client architecture.
