3 Reasons Bandwidth is the Lifeblood of Your Company
In today’s technologically driven business world, it may seem an obvious advantage for a company to have fast, reliable bandwidth. It saves time, and more importantly, it saves money. Still, many businesses neglect the fact that as the Internet grows and changes, their networking capabilities must grow and change with it. Bandwidth speeds that are inefficient can be the iceberg that sinks your company. Here are three reasons why dependable and fast bandwidth is the driving force behind business success:
- Speed gets your company ahead
CNN Money said that the average size of a website has doubled in the last three years. So, what does this have to do with business? According to Forbes, 64 percent of employees visit one or more “non-work related sites” a day, and in the process, they are slowing down coworkers connections to software-as-a-service solutions, hosted email accounts and other resources required to get their jobs completed. Faster and more reliable bandwidth leads to faster and more reliable coworker connection
- Fast bandwidth accommodates big data.
Big data is the next hottest thing if business leaders are listening to everyone on the Internet. Every post, tweet and digital transaction creates data, and these massive collections of information are changing the way companies function. Big data provides a huge opportunity for growth. According to Forbes, good analysis of big data can give companies the ability to compete on a global scale, but first, organizations need a big data platform. For this many turn to the cloud, which will put a huge strain on networking resources, especially when sending and receiving information. Faster bandwidth speeds ensure that your business is ready for big data intake.
- A reputation for effective computing keeps employees satisfied.
In a different article, CNN Money stated that millennials are currently the largest generation in the population. As they enter the workforce and assume leadership roles within their companies, they bring their own devices with them. While their knowledge of and ability to effectively employ technology is invaluable, their increased bandwidth usage due to the massive increase in connected smartphones and tablets can create a slowdown for others accessing mission-critical web-based applications and other online resources that are crucial for conducting modern day-to-day business. Providing Internet speeds that are able to accommodate these tech-savvy newcomers will fuel your company’s future growth.
Speed and reliability are the pathways to a successful future for your company, especially when it comes to bandwidth. One way in which organizations improve the amount of bandwidth and support employee productivity is with Bandwidth on Demand (BoD) services. Because BoD allows companies to avoid slowdown and massive overage fees, this solution is a cost-effective method to access a variety of different cloud services and Internet resources.
