If you own your own business, it’s important to carefully consider your IT infrastructure needs. According to this video, most modern businesses rely heavily on software that needs proper infrastructure to run and store data.
The presenter highlights how IT infrastructure addresses a business’ digital functions, including computing, network, workplace, and data platform. In the not-too-distant past, the term IT Infrastructure would conjure up images of hardware including expensive servers and people capable of diagnosing and repairing the equipment onsite.
However, modern companies make use of multiple clouds for most IT infrastructure needs and need backing in terms of software capability rather than hardware capability. While modern infrastructure requires a physical data center, hardware is largely replaced by backing in the form of code and cloud environments. Most processes, including provisioning, happen automatically as coded.
The last thing a business wants is to be hindered by a lack of proper IT infrastructure. These code-based and cloud-based considerations will ensure that the business, and the software used to propel it forward, operate smoothly.
