Digital Infrastucture

Digital Infrastructure (DI) is an end user focused central communication system responsible for improving a user’s experiences. By creating ‘easy-to-consume’ services, DI is able to properly maintain devices in an up-to-date & ready-to-use state unique to a user’s needs.  In this ever-changing digital world, our central communication service offers unlimited flexibility with near instant delivery, enabling quick and efficient compliance to most any digital need.

 

DI is a mediator between a consumable digital service and the end user, enabling a transparent offerings with generally zero input by the end user.  This allows DI to provide a wide range of offerings from ensuring a device is in security compliance to the background delivery of an employee required software.

 

We work closely with IT Liaisons, DSG Group, Systems, and any Fresno State customer looking to improve the end user experience.
