The business IT infrastructure is a critical element of your company’s ability to remain successful in Singapore and the ever-changing global market. Yet, your IT infrastructure network faces a growing number of external threats that could cripple your efforts and possibly shut down the company.
What is IT infrastructure?
IT infrastructure consists of all components that somehow play a role in overall IT and IT-enabled operations. It can be used for internal business operations, to develop customer IT or business solutions. Typically, a standard IT infrastructure consists of the following components:
- Computer Hardware
Computer hardware is required for storing large amounts of information that your company is bound to possess. From collecting and analyzing the data, computer hardware is an integral component to ensuring the smooth passage of information through your IT infrastructure.
- Computer Software
There are two integral types of software that are critical to your IT infrastructure. They include; system software which is the management of activity that is related to computer systems and application software which is required to perform different tasks for your users.
- Data Management Technology
