The data and communications network is the foundation of most businesses today; damage it, and the business is temporarily crippled – or worse.

CDW surveyed 200 IT managers at medium and large businesses that experienced a significant network disruption in the past 12 months, to examine how these disruptions affected their businesses. They asked about the business impact of the disruptions and what, if anything, the company was doing to improve their continuity of operations as a result of their experience.
