This question is becoming more usual in companies. According to a study carried out in USA, the cost per minute of line stop in the automotive companies costs the firms the impressive amount of around 22,000 dollars. On the other hand, a similar study focused on data center downtime yields an average of $ 8,000 per minute. Today it is of the utmost importance to ensure the operation of production lines for business stability, which gives us an idea of the current impact of IT technologies on industrial companies.

Spain, a country of Small and Medium-sized Enterprises

According to the statistics of the Central Companies Directory (CCD), Spain counts as of August 31, 2017 with 4,281 large companies, representing 0.1% of the overall business. 99.9% are self-employed workers and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), at equal rates.

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.

Susceptibility to failure persists, particularly as it relates to factories. According to some research information, more than 90% of machines in factories globally are not network-connected, and the vast majority are more than 15-years-old. 

 

The graphic below shows how much money is lost in a few major industries for just one minute of downtime:

From a few days ago, we have already available for download the awaited new version of Zabbix, the 3.4. You can check here in details all the new features. In this post, we'll try to focus on what it was, maybe, one of the most awaited features, the posibility to design customized dashboards in a more flexible manner than in previous versions.


In fact, until now, if you wanted to build more complex dashboards, you necessarily have to design Zabbix "screens" with the elements you needed and there was some useful elements you could not use like "Problems". We understand in fact that the use of Zabbix "Screens" will be more focused as templates to monitor for instance, several data from a type of server and "...
