The first aspect to focus on is the creation of digital strategies, the Ministry's Director General of Informatics Applications, Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, noted during a virtual event here on Wednesday.
"The first is digital strategy. In the digital era, especially during the pandemic, digital platforms become important for large-scale business players and MSMEs to survive and improve the business development process," Pangerapan noted.
According to Pangerapan, the second strategy pertains to focusing on the availability of systems and infrastructure.
He remarked that business players should ensure the availability of systems in the era of digitalization to bolster operational activities of companies.
Companies are also called on to utilize technology better, he stressed.
Pangerapan stated that the existence of digital platforms will help companies to ensure that the business runs even without the presence of employees in offices or factories.
