A solid IT platform is crucial for data-driven businesses. IT infrastructure, the foundation upon which datasets run, is key to the most basic and even the most sophisticated analytics capabilities. Even the most refined analytics technologies, like machine learning and artificial intelligence, cannot achieve results by themselves. With a high quality and well-organized IT Infrastructure, you’re enabling your organization to perform at its maximum efficiency and effectiveness. Updates to your IT infrastructure might not be the most glamorous change you can do for your organization, but it’s certainly one of the most important.
Here are 3 key areas to look at when updating your infrastructure:
- Analytics Tools – Analytics tools help organizations to be proactive and anticipate the needs of customers, mitigate risk and fraud, quantify company values, as well as improve and personalize customer service. Organizations now need analytics tools that go deeper than the management tools that have been relied upon in the past.
- Networks – Networks have grown in quantity and diversity over time. They must now support IoT, IP phones, video, security systems and much more. Suffice to say, modern networks are the heart of advanced analytics. A key investment in this area includes spending for intelligent networks, which use sensors for collecting real-time data about customers, production facilities, supply chains and other core operations. All organizations desire to improve their ability to collect and gather important data and give them greater access to more accurate and timely data.
- Data Management Resources – As organizations adapt to digital transformation, trust will be the currency that drives this new economy. Closely managed data is trusted data. Once data is collected, it must be managed effectively to remain secure and reliable. The latest technologies reduce the risk of data fragmentation and inconsistent results that can lead to a lack of trust.
