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.
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
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.
