Major Incidents Occur Regularly

Application downtime and service degradation are not once-in-a-blue-moon events. More than two-thirds of companies say they experience a major incident at least several times a year, and more than a quarter experience one at least monthly.

Are companies taking IT major incidents seriously enough? Dimensional Research surveyed more than 400 IT and business professionals to get an idea.

Executives seem to accept that major incidents are the new normal, but they still aren’t hiring staff or investing in preventative technologies necessary to prevent and manage critical events that disrupt their respective businesses. Survey results suggest management may be placing more emphasis on being kept informed during an event than on ensuring timely resolution. Maybe that’s why major incident resolution teams break SLAs much too often.
