The demand for always-on, always-available services has never been stronger. But flat budgets for business continuity and disaster recovery (BC/DR) may be making it difficult for you to meet these high standards. Forrester Research, in a joint survey with Disaster Recovery Journal, has identified several current trends in business resiliency. In this report, Forrester presents an analysis of these trends and how they may affect your BC/DR planning. The report also offers recommendations for taking your business resiliency to the next level, including using new analytic capabilities to help you recognize patterns in preventable outages to prevent downtime; automating as much as possible to improve recovery points and recovery times, and determining real costs of downtime to use as leverage in presenting budgets.
