Disruption to your production environment is costly, and any loss of information can be disastrous. Consequences may include loss of revenue and company reputation, lower shareholder confidence, potential exposure to business continuity risk, or sanctions and fines for noncompliance with regulatory requirements. Organizations need an effective and reliable way to safeguard corporate information in the wake of an unforeseen downtime event.
Most companies have plans in place to ensure employee-to-employee communications following a business disruption event (BDE). But many companies haven’t addressed how communications will be maintained with partners (suppliers, vendors, channel partners, etc.) and customers.

The forces of digital disruption have empowered consumers and inverted the power relationship between buyers and sellers. Competitive advantages based on manufacturing, distribution, and IT are no longer sustainable. Customer loyalty has all but disappeared; buyers can and will shift their allegiance immediately if disappointed.

Businesses need to plan for unforeseen events that can disrupt productivity, impair the customer experience, and possibly even threaten a business’s existence. A disruption every business needs to plan for is any event that destroys valuable data, inhibits access to data, or causes downtime of core applications.
Consider the staggering amount of information your company stores electronically. What if an unforeseen event destroyed all financial records, client contacts, and application data? You wouldn’t be able to send customers accurate invoices. Your marketing efforts might be undermined. You would lack key metrics for measuring quality, profitability, and more. The losses could be staggering.
In every aspect of life, it’s smart to plan for unexpected events. That’s especially true for two plans every business must have: a disaster recovery plan and a business continuity plan.
