Infrastructure is important since businesses build on top of it. Business systems are software driven, mostly tied to networks. This means that the base level hardware is the foundation for the digital world.

The expansion of the Internet is tied largely to the advancement in infrastructure. Storage, processing, and communications systems all improved over the last few decades. This allowed for the connecting of many more nodes, especially with the introduction of the smartphone.
