Survey examines impact of application performance and availability on business end-users
IT management software provider SolarWinds has recently published the findings of a survey which looked into how business end-users are affected by application performance and availability.
For the survey, SolarWinds spoke to more than 300 business application end-users across wide-ranging UK firms of different-sizes. It found that IT departments are becoming increasingly strained due to business application performance and availability issues.
The survey found that the application delivery chain is becoming a progressively more complex issue for IT staff in terms of support and service; thanks largely to the growing adoption of BYOD and their associated consumer apps, as well as cloud services and an ever-more mobile workforce.
One of the most significant findings of the survey carried out by SolarWinds was that a whopping 94 percent of the survey respondents said that application performance and availability affect their ability to carry out their job responsibilities; and 44 percent respondents termed application performance and availability as "critical" factors.
Moreover, with nearly 20 percent of the respondents saying that slow or unavailable applications implied a "significant" loss in financial terms for their company, Suaad Sait - SolarWinds' Executive VP, products and markets - said: "The resulting importance of application performance and availability requires IT to expand beyond infrastructure-centric management to add app-centric management. Beginning now and increasingly so in the future, this will make or break businesses."
