Nimble Storage surveyed nearly 3,000 IT decision makers (ITDMs) and business users worldwide to see how application delays (the "App-Data Gap") affect performance. Nearly two-thirds of all respondents and 76% of US-based respondents reported that the speed of applications they use significantly affects their ability to perform their best at work. Further, just under half of business users surveyed say they waste more than 10% of their workday—about 48 minutes—waiting on slow applications. Extrapolating from the survey data, that could translate to $7.5 billion in lost worker time annually in the US alone. The think piece and infographic show more differences by age, geography, and between ITDMs and business users, as well as possible solutions to overcome the App-Data Gap.
