Network analysis: the principle for high performance

A network diagnosis can show the best path

Many companies are looking to improve their computer network infrastructure in order to achieve high performance and enable processes to become uninterrupted and more efficient. Identifying such improvements, detailed network analysis is essential. This analysis usually points to issues related to network crashes and crashes.

Network problems happen in the companies day-to-day that work with complex technologies, knocking down systems and links. They also stimulate slowness that, even sporadically, affects internal processes. A video conferencing with picture and sound perforations may be inconvenient, but the slowness impacts can be even more serious. It affects systems, applications and databases, which run the notes issuance, recruitment and selection processes, e-commerce, payroll, covenants, among others, causing losses to the company in business and operational costs.

For example, let’s cite a large healthcare company, with thousands of contractors, that needed 24 hours on average to process their invoices. This, when it was not necessary to restore the equipment due to the program interruption. In addition to lost productivity, the factors that compromised this network generated extra operating costs, since employees needed to monitor the equipment until the transaction end.

For this company, the network diagnosis pointed to the equipment replacement by other more robust ones, that worked together with a solution formed by three equipment, better known as loadbalance. The new integration allowed the processing time to be reduced to four hours. In this case, although the company made an investment in new technologies, the return projection was short-term as the processing time for invoices fell dramatically, as well as several other transactions.

These are tangible benefits, but more robust technologies deployment through network analysis also brings intangible benefits such as improving the employees work quality and the team motivation.

After a diagnosis, reconfigurations and settings on the network can be made. However, a restructuring project should be considered, and should be designed by a specialized consultancy, since it involves the equipment and technologies exchange. What distinguishes this work done by specialists is that the diagnosis performed consists of structure analyzes, topology and network configurations that are given in the equipment to know if it supports improvements. Often, however configurations are made, there is the equipment technical limitation, with no other alternative but its replacement.

The important thing for a company is that the technology works to their advantage. Network diagnosis has the demonstrating role of the best path to this goal. And even if there is investment, a improvements projection and return on investment will point value to the company’s business, such as improving the environment, the compliance officers perception, the users perception, and even their customers.
