The major IT infrastructure failure

Currently, we see a decline in the infrastructure area in many companies, where the main focus is to reduce costs as much as possible, in favor of an overwhelming return on investment, regardless of the quality of the infrastructure.

Because of this, we see scenes with signs written "No system" wherever we go. Disqualified professionals, without basic and elementary knowledge, are scattered everywhere.

Knowing how to know a network structure well is essential to guarantee the functionality of a system, to maintain a company's core business, to maintain its profits, and mainly: to mitigate risks related to information security.

Who has never been to recharge their single ticket and has always encountered numerous terminals offline? Long lines to try to load the ticket and in turn, the machine stopped working?

All of this could be solved if there was a better investment in infrastructure. Even a 3G modem would be more stable than many networks like these, although a wired network is physically better than a wireless one; but the lack of competence of the professionals is so alarming, that we have to depend on sub-technologies to the detriment of the professionals' lack of knowledge.

Wi-fi network costs more than wired network. But there are people who disagree with this for the simple fact that just put a router in one place and "ready", all places will have a connection. Wrong. It is not so.

Any type of network has its cost based on its planning, and any project poorly planned, will have its high cost in the end. Reducing the cost of living for years with network latency, lack of connectivity, unavailability, causes losses in performance, productivity, among others that are not seen in the first instance.

Connect cables and leave them stuck thanks only to the gravity that keeps it in place, design a network to work through another network and when arriving and installing a system there is no network point, and having to change to another scheme on the spot. are risks and project failures that can result in major losses.

After all, if the company works with systems, the commercial only wants to sell at the lowest possible cost to beat the competition, but what about availability? And security?

It is not a crisis that is the reason to make everything "cheaper", and run the risk of having a system unavailable due to infrastructure failure.
