Many downtime events may have often been heard since 2016 to date. Both overseas and in Indonesia, downtime has taken place in big business and popular in IT community. The news of downtime certainly undermines business reputations. So, if your IT operations faltered what is the impact on your business?
Downtime is a condition in which all business operations are paralyzed, but there must be more on to watch by all company leaders, IT operational conditions are not smooth or choked up. For example, slowdown on data communication network, decreasing application performance, and so on.
IT operations can be hampered by several factors, including:
- Hardware is starting to break down
- Hardware that is not in compliance with increasing workload demands
- Software with increasingly accumulated and unoptimized databases
- Configuration error
- The existence of malware that has been secretly infiltrated into your IT network system and burden the performance of your IT infrastructure.
Here’s what happens technically if one of those factors happens in your IT system:
- All of the computing process runs slowly over time
- The application database’s integrity can be affected
- It gets harder and takes a lot of time in consolidation process
- Reporting can be inaccurate
- Often there is a “halted” condition on some client units and requires “resetting”
Businesses experiencing such those things above will have an impact on operational performance. We can imagine if IT operations are stuck on a business that serves buyers in retail stores, of course, the business unit can not optimize its revenue.
