Downtime Costs How Much? Calculating the Business Value of Disaster Recovery
As an IT professional, you will experience a system failure, outage, or complete site disaster. It’s inevitable, and your organisation probably already has some sort of disaster recovery (DR) plan in place.
Most days, you probably don’t even think about DR. You focus on projects that streamline processes, decrease costs and give you some good visibility. DR is rarely considered strategic to the business. But when that disaster happens and you need to quickly restore your company’s data and IT services, an ineffective DR plan can pose a serious threat to the company as a whole.
An ineffective DR plan can mean the difference between being seen as a hero to the C-suite, or the loss of valuable company data.
