Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
We have all heard horror stories of simple mistakes or uncontrollable misfortunes which have led to costly business disasters.
Planning for the unknown can be difficult and often, companies are faced with more pressing issues than preparing for something that may or may not happen (or so they think) but with the combination of hardware failures, human error and natural disasters – the reality is that data loss could be just a few clicks away!
Infuse Technology believe that by preparing for these situations is of paramount importance. Imagine having a fire at one of your branch offices but being able to relocate all of your staff to another office by 9am the next day with no loss of data or functionality?
Here are our top 3 reasons why you should rethink your IT Business Continuity plans:
3. Machines and hardware fail
Despite technology constantly evolving and doing things we never thought possible, no devices are completely immune to hard disk or connection failures. A sensible option is to have your data backed up regularly.
2. But us humans aren’t perfect either!
Ever accidentally saved over a document? It happens to the best of us and even the most cautious of us can forget a step in an important process causing data loss or incorrect data entry. Whilst checking and double checking you’ve done the right thing can be the best remedy, online backups are always there as a safety net.
1. Think about your customers
Your customers expect perfection, and if you can’t provide it one of your competitors is in line ready to give it a shot! Most IT disasters are deemed absolutely unacceptable to end users - don’t give your customers a reason to leave because of something preventable like an outage in service.
Conclusion: Save Money, Save Time, Save Your Business. Develop a solid IT Business Continuity Plan!
Whilst no business is immune to IT disasters, too many businesses fail because they weren’t prepared.
If your business hasn’t thought about developing an IT disaster recovery plan yet, it should be on the top of your list of priorities. Your business and customers demand it.
