Disaster Got You Down?
A business-continuity / disaster-recovery plan can help you cut costs by avoiding downtime, lost revenue and dissatisfied customers. Business processes today are highly interactive. Every part of the workflow is contingent upon another process or system working properly. Having network connectivity is essential for communication with customers, partners and staff.
Unfortunately, today's IT infrastructures face varying risks of interruption due to a myriad of different reasons. A disruption can take the form of a natural disaster. It can also take the form of something less global like a power outage or software virus. IT must be ready for any type of disruption where the business cannot access applications and data.
In today's economic climate, every dollar counts. While trying to predict an outage is impossible, being prepared for one is not. Having the right tools in place to respond to a "disaster" is essential to sustaining a successful organization.
