Technology speed impacts the productivity of 75 percent of Southeast Asian IT professionals and business application users, according to a survey by Nimble Storage.
Half of Southeast Asian business users avoid using some software applications at work because they run too slowly.
Eighteen percent of IT professionals think their users are either unsatisfied or very unsatisfied with the way software systems work at their companies.
More than half (57 percent) of Southeast Asian respondents lose more than 10 percent of their workday waiting on technology to deliver the information they need.
"It's no mystery why business users expect access to data to be immediate and continuous," said Suresh Vasudevan, CEO, Nimble Storage. "The conundrum facing IT decision makers is how to predict and prevent performance bottlenecks before users perceive a slowdown in responsiveness."
Slow responding applications
Forty-three percent of Southeast Asian respondents waste more than 10 minutes each workday waiting for a software application to respond.
Half of the respondents avoid using certain applications at work because they run too slowly.
Eighty-eight percent of respondents said they are less tolerant of delays than they were five years ago.
The report identifies the performance bottleneck between the data and the application to negatively impact employee work time and ultimately impair business performance.
"We believe that by bypassing reactive approaches for root cause analysis that typically take days or weeks, IT departments can harness data sciences and machine learning to predict and prevent barriers to data velocity while fully empowering employees to achieve their best," added Vasudevan.
