How much does one minute of your production cost?
This same question has been asked by many people and companies across the globe. According to a study in the US, the cost of production stops varies depending on the company, but could reach, for example, around $22,000 per minute in companies in the automotive sector. Moreover, a similar study focused on data centre shutdown times averaged $8,000 per minute. Today, a drop in the data centre of a company can probably force to stop all or part of the chain of production, reaching high amounts in losses of income. This gives us an idea of the weight and impact that IT technologies currently have on the network of industrial companies.
