Its a simple question, but do you really know? Do your IT staff have the time, energy, tools, and expertise to manage response times? In many small to mid-sized organizations the answer is no and even in many of the the largest of organizations this is true. Internal staff often have too many high priority demands that get in the way of network monitoring and management functions. While perhaps in the early stages of a network buildout many small performance dips go unnoticed. However over time network performance issues unchecked can become show stoppers.
Network slowdowns can originate from a variety of issues and may be indicative of overbooked resources, improper patch management, unwanted user activity, viruses, failing circuits, among many other issues. Without diligent management and monitoring of resources issues that could have been addressed without disruption now manifest themselves as major infrastructure outages. While many organizations may consider outages as part of the day to day, the overall cost to your business and its efficiency may be many times greater then considered and can be avoided.
