SAN JOSE, Calif., May 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CDNetworks - A new Nimble Storage and Oxford Economics study reveals US companies may be losing $7.5B in worker productivity annually due to slow application performance. 76% of US business application users said application speed significantly impacts their ability to perform their best in the workplace. 40% of business users say they avoid using some software applications at work because they run too slowly.
The results are not surprising, but what was surprising is that the IT Professionals who responded were not always aware of the issue. When asked "How frustrating do you think employees find slow application performance?", only 55% of US IT Professionals answered very or extremely frustrating.
Often the discrepancy is due to a balance of security with ease of use. Business users tend to hate the VPN and sometimes avoid using applications when the only option is VPN.
