One of the major components to our client's success is the effectiveness of their connectivity. Just as it sounds, connectivity is the state of being connected, a back of mind concept for many users. This component is crucial in how different pieces of technology work together to provide a flawless work environment.
Why does this matter? How our client's network and connectivity work together directly influences what decisions are made about what a technical environment needs, or doesn't need.
We focus on connectivity for our partners by using The 3 P's. We determine what programs are being used, how they are performing, and the overall level of productivity the user hopes to gain from efficient connectivity in their organization.
Determining the daily use of applications is useful in arranging how to set up a network to best support the bandwidth of crucial applications. Setting up a network that can effectively support these programs will directly improve the connectivity at large.
With the use of these programs follows the level of performance, otherwise known as latency. Latency is measured by milliseconds, and it emphasizes the amount of delays within a client's network. As the level of latency increases, the reliability of technology decreases, therefore affecting the overall performance of programs. Keeping connectivity back of mind will affect overall technical performance.
One purpose of IT is to help raise the levels of productivity within a work environment. If users are constantly struggling with certain technical issues, they won't be as productive. Spending time during an IT consultation examining different connectivity options will help to achieve the goal of increasing user productivity, and aid in meeting our client's goals.
The better the connectivity, the more reliable the programs will be, resulting in a high level of performance and user productivity.
That's why connectivity matters.
