TechFlash this week reports that March Madness can negatively impact your bottom line because “streaming basketball games will also affect everyone else's Internet speeds at work” and “could cost employers more than $190 million in lost productivity time.”
But it doesn't have to.
In fact, here, IT managers can make a slam-dunk.
Assuming employees get their jobs done, many business managers seem happy for workers to participate in events like March Madness. They're good for morale.
IT managers can negate the cost of this perk by adding a low balancing router with 2 WAN ports and a cheap Internet connection, like cable or broadband DSL.
Doing this eliminates slow speeds during high demand periods. Plus, it adds redundancy to your business network. So, when demands return to normal (you know, when it isn't March Madness, the US Open or the Super Bowl), your business network is more secure.
Price erosion has made this option affordable, especially if you consider, as TechFlash does, the high cost of doing nothing at all.
