According to Dun and Bradstreet, 59% of Fortune 500 companies experience an average of 1.6 hours of downtime every week. It is almost guaranteed, whether you are a start-up or an established firm, that you will experience downtime at some point, whether caused by hardware malfunctions, theft, human error, system crashes, power outages, fires, cyber-attacks, rogue employees, or other natural (or unnatural) disasters.
The immediate impact of a critical system interruption is obvious: lost productivity and revenue. Depending on the scope of the issue, these can be expensive on their own, but there are additional factors to consider: the cost of restoring functionality and eliminating the root cause, loss of repeat sales and referrals due to customer dissatisfaction, and damage to your company’s reputation, to name a few.
