Businesses are pushing network capabilities to the limit, especially now with the recent explosion in remote activity caused by the pandemic. With all the challenges we’re facing in 2020, there has never been a more crucial time to ensure your company has a fast, reliable, and functional network. Yet most companies tend to overlook the benefits of analyzing network data to improve security and functionality, along with other useful stats that can help improve system performance and ultimately lead to higher profitability. You could have access to an unlimited sea of data just waiting to be utilized, and with the right platform and resources, it could help bring your business to the new heights.
Remote activity is currently at peak use, which means your network is more vulnerable than ever. Ransomware, viruses, and network breaches have been increasing dramatically because of this, which could potentially cost your company millions of dollars. Proper data analytics can allow your IT network team to spot irregularities and suspicious activity, and make it possible to monitor your network health, Wi-Fi health, and security health, so that you can pinpoint a problem as soon as it starts. This saves time, money, and resources, so attention can be focused exclusively on making your business grow. The best way to avoid an attack is to make sure it can’t start in the first place.
Analytical data can be particularly effective with troubleshooting and diagnostics, but can be useful beyond technical difficulties. Historical data analysis allows your company to understand your networks behavior, which can help generate in-depth reporting based on your company’s work history. Monitoring bandwidth and other resource usage over a longer term enables better insight for planning changes to network capacity. And pattern recognition can assist in preparation for an event before it happens. The data reports can be shared with stakeholders and different business units, so that accurate, clean data can be implemented to help drive important decision making when needed.
