The dynamic operation of all companies requires some form of IT infrastructure.
The establishment of IT security starts with establishing a system. The highest level of protection can be achieved through an appropriately designed architecture.
The capacity, functionality and other parameters of the infrastructure should be tailored to the needs of the business based on efficiency as well as financial considerations.
The efficient functioning of the infrastructure requires the professional design and continuous monitoring of user authorization.
Although anyone can acquire the infrastructural elements necessary for assembling a smaller architecture, the choice of the appropriate technologies requires engineering expertise.
DevOps/DevSecOps solutions that ensure the fastest and most efficient introduction of developments can only be established on appropriately prepared IT infrastructures. In order to achieve an even greater degree of dynamism, all the elements of modern architectures can/will be displayed as software code (Infrastructure as a Code).
Manufacturers distribute a number of “ready-made” solutions, yet their installation and integration into existing systems often requires special configurations and developments.
IoT devices that will become increasingly widespread in the near future can give a huge push to any firm, yet will also pose great challenges to the infrastructure of companies as they must establish the necessary environment for the operation of new technologies.
It’s a common misconception that thanks to cloud service operators, nowadays, a single e-mail is enough to provide our business with a suitable IT infrastructure. Actually, the parameters of cloud services also require fine tuning just as in the case of conventional IT solutions.
Modern work – particularly since the experiences of the pandemic – clearly includes the remote access of internal systems and working from home. The IT background required for the operation of a safe home office can be established with the suitable IT infrastructure.
The providers of the current definitive infrastructure-solutions outline the following possible challenges and trends in relation to the post-Covid IT infrastructure:
Due to the pandemic, many companies came to terms with the fact that home office can make work far more flexibly and effectively – yet mass remote work can pose certain security challenges that must be handled.
An increasing number of companies use multicloud services for the sake of the sustainability of their work processes. The model based on the mixed use of physical, on-site infrastructural elements and public cloud services can help cut costs and boost the flexibility of the entire system.
Since a number of companies will retain hybrid models of partly remote and party office-based work, users will be less available en masse in a shared physical environment. In order to eliminate the difficulties arising from this situation, amongst other things, it is recommended to automate repeated, administrative tasks, the onboarding process, the acquisition of access rights and the optimization of IT resources based on current loads.
The operation of the increasingly complex and widespread modern IT infrastructure has an exceptionally great resource demand, therefore monitoring systems based on artificial intelligence solutions will play an ever-greater role in the future.
One of the most revealing references of the infrastructure-development competencies of BlackBelt is our existing cooperation with Ericsson. As a company at the forefront of the development of mobile network solutions, Ericsson is a pioneer organization working on the introduction and earliest possible implementation of 5G, the latest mobile technology standard.
At BlackBelt, we’re proud of the fact that we are actively involved in the creation of solutions that enable the safe remote access and operation of the mobile infrastructural elements developed and operated by Ericsson.
