When it comes to running an online business, you need to grow quickly and offer excellent customer service. However, you may face challenges if your business isn’t built for scalability. Your digital infrastructure plays a huge role in the stability of your business and its ability to absorb and adapt to changing trends. If you aren’t using reliable technology, you’ll constantly find yourself on a rocky foundation full of cracks, vulnerabilities and flaws.

If you want to be successful in today’s digital economy, you need to be able to keep up with the rapid pace of change. If you don’t have the right technology in place, you won’t grow your business.

Maintaining the effectiveness of your technology infrastructure is a four-step process:

1. Security

A company’s inability to preserve the integrity and security of its data spells doom for any business. Unfortunately, this is the reality for a lot of companies. Security isn’t a priority. When you’re operating at a low-profit margin, investing in security is usually considered a non-revenue generating policy. But this is problematic because a security incident is a low-probability but high-cost event. The price to pay can sometimes be irrecoverable. Think about it. Can you really know the true cost of leaking your customers’ personal information? Is there a price tag for trust once it’s lost?

2. Stability

If you can’t use your technology when you need it most, why bother having it first? Customers aren’t willing to put up with a bad experience. We’ve grown accustomed to convenience and seamless transactions in today’s digital economy. If you don’t have this, your customers won’t think twice about leaving you and choosing your competitor. As such, you need to make sure your digital infrastructure is always up and running. You need to be reliable.

3. Scalability

The digital infrastructure supporting your operations must grow with your organisation and handle the increased demand that comes with it. Scalability is one of the most important factors in any IT project because you will fall behind your competitors without it. Your operations are only as good as the infrastructure supporting them. 

4. Sustainability

In the face of increasing cyberattacks, your ability to ensure security, stability and scalability at a single point in time is critical. But it’s more important than ever to ensure that you can sustain these over the long term. Unpredictability is inherent in the digital economy. Your organisation can reach new heights if it can handle a sustained increase in volume and maintain it over time.
