Building Reliable Digital operations

After we have seen the three biggest industrial revolutions the fourth revolution is in place. This bring us the promise of the most exciting and innovative technologies. We are already on a brink of the tremendous technical revolution which will reform the ways we work, interact and live with one another. This revolution will be something like the mankind has ever experienced before.

The most revolutionary technologies, IoT (Internet of things), Flexible maker technologies, Big Data etc. hold the potential to metamorphose an organisation’s way to compete and create value in the market place. Now the urge is to make this a cornerstone for the enterprises whose effect will cause a disruption and the market will follow this inevitably.

Business Insights

In an organisation being a business leader, one may this think that thinking and implementing this kind of cutting edge technology. Embracing the feasibility and tractability of new technologies is important but the most important exercise is that the benefits of the technology is delivered to the customers and must be worth the efforts put in. Here where the operational capabilities come into play, where the excellence ca only deliver the best results and the close to the perfect implementation.

There are certain notes which need to be considered for this.

  • The operations must be planned and well adapted and researched as per the customer requirements.

  • The reliability factor should be high as well as there must be adaptability as required which is the most challenging part here to be achieved.

  • The technology must be reconciled in the ways that it satisfies the business requirements.

  • The conflicting demands should be filtered out and must be planned on the fulfillment.

Infrastructure as a Code

Here we are talking about the new business era with significantly evolving digital advancements. Here the three things matter the most which are

  • Speed

  • Adaptability

  • Reliability

The operational infrastructure in this digital era will be based on the cloud where the delivery of the results should happen within the fraction of the seconds. The cloud base infrastructure of any mode of operations requires its own infrastructure, such as databases, servers, networking software, digital libraries etc. These things may seen small but are the backbone of the whole infrastructure and any differences may prove to be catastrophic.

Investment requirement and reliability factor.

The automaton is the next stage after deployment of the cloud based operations and setting up the infrastructure for optimised performance and speed. But, this requires a significant amount of money, time and resources to be invested. But the getting investments, take just more than an infrastructure but the capabilities of the setup. Even the biggest organisations face the gap between the operations and the software development teams. As the development often take time but the ops is needed to be completed in the minimum time frame. Hence the efficiency and coordination of the system must be at par to gain a capital investment and utilise it without any hitches.

A solid foundation is required.

The infrastructure’s code foundation ( Cloud) and the operation collaboration is the most critical aspect for establishment. This foundation which requires – speed, adaptability and reliability for any forthcoming scenarios and progress. Everyone must play their part in making the foundation rock strong.



Adapting A Digital Platform Strategy

Any established company in this digital world know, the challenges of remaining technologically advanced and modernise with the averaging technology. It’s crucial to lay out a plan to update the technology and upgrade without causing any to the day to day operations. A schematic approach is required with a rock-solid foundation rock solid to make the changes and upgrade the technology. Here where are going to discuss the strategies and approach towards the digital platform.

An Approach

Building a competitive digital platform acts as one of an option which promotes, the integration of digital platforms customer platform with the pre-existing system. Here it must also be noted that containment and management are better than the replacement and management of the system. This approach starts with focusing on the customer and their demands which implies as

  • Charting a course: Identify platform customer service goals and implementing them in the digital platform.
  • Establish your ground: After the initial integration is done, these services need to be guarded against any threats which me organisational or schematic.
  • Forging and embedding new frontier: post the establishment of a new digital platform, new services could be added and integrated making it a building block of an organisation.

Even for the mature companies who have experience and have invested for years in new businesses, strategic re-platforming will play a substantial role in making the migration from their own established IT core to a digital platform. After this transition, every organisation must go looking for any further scope of improvements, any adverse effects etc which will prove to strengthen, build and optimise the digital capabilities.

Re-platform Strategically

Developed or experience organisation who have already been investing in the side technologies know the importance of technological advancement in the ever-ageing era of technology. Most of those organisations have already adapted to the change but may still work on the core IT platform. To make them digitalised instead of replacement of the whole structure a strategic re platforming can be considered that it doesn’t affect the business operation and also goes on well with the business associated innovative disruption. The digitalisation of the platforms will further provide the opportunities for the advancement buy cloud-based operations, which serve as an integral part for the advanced operations management and is faster and reliable than the core IT technology.

The takeaway

The digital transformation has a promising future but the success of this transformation solely depends upon the management of the operations aspects. Managing the digital platform is as integral as managing any core IT technology. Unlike which is more easy and centralised. The design if the platform must be optimised in such a manner that none of the operations is affected and the diversification of the multi-sided businesses can also be managed.

Speed, performance and integrity are the most important aspects which must be handled in a proactive manner. The delivery of the services must be speedy and efficient to ensure the benefits of the platform, else leading to the failure of the system.
