Cost of DowntimeDecember 15, 2014
Unplanned outages are expensive, and the cost of those outages is exponentially rising. As clients rely heavily on their network connectivity, even slight downtime could have the potential to cost the enterprise money, time and frustration. Networks continue to be more and more valuable to the enterprises they serve, and having a strong and reliable business continuity plan is essential for every network.
According to a 2013 study from the Ponemon Institute, the cost per minute of unplanned downtime is $7,900—a staggering amount for sixty seconds, and a dramatic 41% increase from the previous 2010 study. It is reported that 76% of all enterprises experience an outage per year, while 50% of small and mid-size businesses have no recovery plan at all. Yet a strong and reliable network is crucial for preventing outages and saving enterprises of all sizes an exorbitant amount of money and – importantly – trust from their client bases.
