The Importance of Digital Infrastructure and Integration Planning

Brick and mortar businesses must have a digital presence in the current marketplace. Consumers are using the Internet and mobile apps to purchase products and services in ever-increasing numbers.

With that in mind, big box retailers such as Walmart, Target and Best Buy have stepped up their digital game, and Amazon started as a completely digital business before moving into brick and mortar stores on a limited basis.

But if you don’t have a digital presence now, or you want to increase your technical capabilities within the digital economy, what do you do? We can guide you through digital transformation by helping to build your digital infrastructure and integration planning.

What Is Digital Infrastructure?

Digital infrastructure refers to the digital technologies that provide the foundation for an organization’s information technology and operations. Examples of digital infrastructure include:

  • Internet backbone, broadband
  • Mobile telecom and digital communication suites, including applications
  • Data centers and networks
  • Enterprise portals, platforms, systems, and software
  • Cloud services and software
  • Operational security, user identity and data encryption
  • APIs and integrations

What Is Integration Planning?

Integration planning occurs when all facets of the business (such as customer service, HR, IT, sales, management, etc) join together to review their current systems (including legacy and obsolete ones) and the data generated as part of their daily operations. Then, they define a path to connect their data, break silos of information and share their knowledge to become smarter. Integration planning can improve customer, employee, business partner, and overall stakeholder experiences.

Long-term integration planning ensures that every effort has an owner and goals to follow. By integrating systems and tools, a business can develop consistent service delivery models, create enhanced experiences and standardize its management processes.
