A Digital Practitioner cannot start developing a product until deciding what it will be built with. They also need to understand something of how computers are operated, enough to make decisions on how the system will run. Most startups choose to run IT services on infrastructure owned by a cloud computing provider, but there are other options. As the product scales up, the practitioner will need to be more and more sophisticated in their understanding of its underlying IT services. Finally, developing deep skills in configuring the base platform is one of the most important capabilities for the practitioner.
