Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity
Statistics reveal over and over again a salient fact - businesses without a Disaster Recovery plan don't recover from catastrophic data loss over 40% of the time. A business without a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plan risks its very survival if any serious data loss occurs due to Power Outages, Flooding, Earthquake, Virus or Malware attacks or hardware failures.
What Will it Cost Me?

As one expert in the field of Disaster Recovery Planning said, "dollars spent in prevention are worth more than dollars spent in recovery." Depending upon the size of your company and its need for systems availability, your DRP budget should run between 2 and 8 percent of your overall IT budget. The money that you spend now to protect your company's IT infrastructure will buy far more than it will after a disaster.

How Do We Know if We Have a Viable Plan?

There are four crucial steps in every DRP:

• Risk Analysis
• Establish the Budget
• Develop the Plan
• Test, Test, Test

One of the biggest challenges in building the plan is doing a realistic risk analysis. Often your IT organization understands your company's technology, but is not privy to business operations risks or the impact of downtime to certain business units or organizations. Digital Future can help your business build a Disaster Recovery Plan that will address the areas of critical risk as well as better understand your options for implementing the final plan.

We focus on increasing your company's profitability through improving user productivity.
