You Have No Idea How Catastrophic a Downed Computer Network Is

Do you know how much it would cost your company if your computer network went down? If you add up all the costs, you might be shocked. Infonetics Research found that overall downtime costs for U.S. businesses averaged an astounding 3.6 percent of annual revenue. Most companies have little or no idea how much IT downtime could cost their business specifically. According to a recent survey, two-thirds of 400 enterprises quizzed by Forrester Research could not provide a number related to the financial cost to their business for such a critical circumstance. Many organizations monitor the effects of application-related failures from a technical or fault-diagnostic perspective but fail to relate any problems to an organization's bottom line.
