6 causes of application deployment failure

Today’s businesses operate in an environment of accelerated transformation and rapidly changing business models. It is critical for concerned IT leaders to reduce the risk of failure.

It’s no secret that application deployment failures and slow deployment timelines lead to massive financial losses. Potential damage to one’s businesses reputation and, ultimately, the loss of customers make failure one of the top priorities for every management level, from CEOs to IT Directors, according to a recent ADT report.

The costs alone are intimidating. Infrastructure failures can cost as much as $100,000 per hour. Production outages cost roughly $5,000 per minute. Critical applications can cost organizations $500,000 to $1 million per hour in some cases.

Why all the problems? Based on my 13 years of IT experience working with clients of all sizes across various industries, these are some key causes of application deployment failure:

Operational resilience means more than the ability to recover from failure. It also includes the ability to prevent failures and take actions to avoid them.
