As IT applications continue to power businesses more and more, it is becoming ever more important to ensure robust Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery or BCDR as itâ€™s essential to preserve and increase customer and shareholder confidence.
Machines & Hardware Fail
While we have reached a stage in technology where Intelligent bots are shaking up lawyerâ€™s jobs, itâ€™s still not perfect and is bound to have issues here and there. Identifying and eliminating the single point of failure in your IT infrastructure could be an expensive affair, although it is really the only way to ensure that a hardware failure will not interrupt your service or cause data loss. The best option is to backup your data regularly, ideally with a leading and highly secure managed hosting provider. This will help to eliminate any interruptions in case of IT infrastructure failures.
Humans Make Mistakes
This is the most seen mistake, and the hardest to prevent and correct, regularly backed up data lets you restore it to an error-free state. As much as we wish we were, people are not perfect and can easily overlook an important step in a process and accidentally delete data or enter the wrong data. Making sure you have efficient processes in place and good quality assurance programs are your best bet, but having an online backup solution can be as equally important.
Nature is Unpredictable
We have all read and seen what can happen when the wrath of mother nature hits, which can be unpredictable at times. Businesses that donâ€™t have a backup and disaster recovery plan in place can find it almost impossible to resume operations after a major disaster hits. In fact, an estimated 80% of all companies that experience a business interruption of greater than five days, without recovery plans, go out of business.
Customers Want Access 24/7/365
Times have changed, now customer holds the key to a business, an average customer expects the information they want to access to be available at his will. This means if your organization is facing infrastructure issues and cannot pull out the data in a timely fashion, these anxious customers could jump ship to a competitor.
We conclude by saying that without having a proper contingency plan, companies run the risk of incurring high monetary and non-monetary losses like outages, downtime, loss of data, low employee morale, loss of reputation, and lower revenues. Thus, a robust disaster recovery strategy is important to run a successful and a secure business.
