On Big Game day today, Domino’s Pizza is planning to deliver millions of pizzas (it estimates that a total of 11 million slices will be delivered) and 2.5 million chicken wings. According to Domino’s execs, the national game day gorge has become more than just a manner of beefing up on drivers, dough tossers, and yes, beef — it’s also quite an undertaking in the information technology department.

According to the Michigan-based company, a third of Domino’s orders come though a digital channel these days, and of course even the analog orders run through the corporate network. In 2007, for the first time, Domino’s saw the need to put together a game day “defense” team on Big Game day to sit in a conference room and keep an eye on all the information systems.
