The use of digital platforms is considered to be the key for business actors to continue to innovate and expand. Meanwhile, digital platform technology such as operating systems, computing, databases, storage, and application programming interfaces (APIs) is something that is no longer foreign to the business world.
The level of adoption of platform technology by non-digital native companies needs to be accelerated because it is still far from optimal. Let alone at the national level, even in the global arena, the amount of optimization is still very small.
According to a 2019 McKinsey & Company report, only 3 percent of global native non-digital companies are able to optimally adopt the platform. In fact, more than 30 percent of global economic activity or the equivalent of US $ 60 trillion is estimated to be mediated by the platform until 2025.
Senior Director for SEATH of Aruba Justian Chiah mengatakan sebanyak 80 persen perusahaan berbasis teknologi informasi menemukan perangkat internet of things (IoT) yang tidak pernah dipasang ataupun dikelola.
He continued, the old network that was adopted by non-digital native companies could not keep up with the ongoing digital transformation. This is because complex manuals and device-by-device segmentation are considered to slow down additions, movements, and changes.
In addition, the access control list (ACL) is said to be unmanaged or non-existent, exacerbating security risks.
Other challenges include the management of fragmented platforms, Wi-Fi, IoT, and WAN switching; Owned equipment creates complexity and inhibits agility, so that the time for remediation or the recovery process is prolonged and has an impact on the service level agreement (SLA).
