For Infrastructure & Operations Professionals

Identify And Estimate The Costs Of Downtime On Your Business

Don't Rely On Industry Averages — Determine Your Own

October 12, 2017

Why Read This Report

Technology infrastructure is hypercritical to the operations of any business, and downtime costs dearly. Infrastructure and operations professionals leading their firms’ business continuity (BC) efforts need to arrive at a downtime cost to help them build a business case and secure investments in building resilient infrastructure that delivers continuous operations. However, calculating the potential cost of downtime can be notoriously difficult; hence, BC leaders end up using industry averages that do not serve their company’s purpose — executives will see right through numbers that do not rightly represent the risks that the business faces. BC leaders can use Forrester’s cost of downtime calculator to identify the various risks and their associated costs to build a sound business case with the necessary justification for making the investment required to develop resiliency.
