An “interspheral system” is a system whose structure and functional logic have an interspheral structure in the sense that they enable the fulfilment of a function, a sense or a purpose in more than one sphere.

An “interspheral system” is a delimitable set of elements belonging to two or more different spheres which form a transpheral functional unit by being interconnected in such a way that they can interact to fulfil a function, a purpose or a purpose across all the spheres involved.

The term “interspheral system” was coined within the framework of the “Digital Era Framework”. The “Digital Era Framework” serves as a frame of reference for the systematizing description of phenomena occurring in the course of digital change, digitization and digital transformation. For this purpose, four spheres of information manifestation are distinguished: The infosphere, which consists of the analog infosphere and the digital infosphere, the cognisphere and the entisphere. If a system now extends over several of these spheres, this constellation is referred to as the “interspheral system”.
