The current digital environment requires organizations to have a reliable system connected through a vibrant ecosystem of networks. These connections have made it possible to conduct business at any time, from any location or time zone.
But unplanned network downtime is costly to any business, causing disruption of production, loss of data and revenues and communication breakage.
In fact, a report by Ponemon Institute states that network downtime can cost a small- or medium-sized business anywhere from $8,000 to $74,000 per hour, depending on how much your business operations rely on technology. No matter the size of your company, you will undoubtedly face significant impacts during a network outage.
You should, therefore, prioritize reducing network downtime in your office. You can do this by first identifying the possible root causes of downtime and then taking the steps necessary to eradicate those issues.
