Is there any specific IT terminology between network type techs for the software that sits in between your network infrastructure (i.e. physical kit) and your ERP/line of business apps. I.e. your active directories, DNS, DHCP, file services, remote access, app servers, proxy servers, RDBMS servers/apps, citrix, print services etc.

I wasn't sure if there is any generally accepted terminology for this area of your network. meta-structure? Or what you refer to them as in your orgs?

Is infrastructure typically referred to as your physical stuff, ie hosts, enterprise storage, switches, firewalls etc.

network administrator is the hardware and typically the software services providing access to the network like dhcp, dns, ad and such.
ERP - software engineers or database administrators are typical depending on the exact system you run.

Precise technical terms and their definitions are formally recognized, documented, and taught by educators in the field. Other terms are more colloquial, coined and used by practitioners in the field, and are similar to slang.

 infrastructure refers to interconnecting hardware and software and not to computers and other devices that are interconnected. However, to some information technology users, infrastructure is viewed as everything that supports the flow and processing of information.
