What's the Real Cost of Downtime?
Infrastructure matters. When your network or applications unexpectedly fail or crash, downtime can have a direct impact on your bottom line and ongoing business operations.
The industry average cost of downtime is dependent on a lot of variables. The monetary losses vary when you consider your revenue, industry, the actual duration of the outage, the number of people impacted, the time of day, etc.
For example, losses are significantly higher per hour for businesses who are based on high-level data transactions, like banks and online retail sales.
If you experience an unplanned outage during peak traffic time, obviously the damage will be more significant.
But there are other costs that don’t often show up in dollar form. Did you know, according to a study by UC Irvine, it often takes an average of 23 minutes to refocus and get your head back in the game after an interruption?
IT downtime affects customer retention, employee productivity and reputation in the marketplace. It is extremely expensive, and in ways that can make or break the success of your organization.
