In an UOTG survey, over 80 percent of business executives admitted that their business could not tolerate more than twenty minutes of downtime before incurring significant issues. If you’re one of them, you understand the importance of continuity: the need to plan for unscheduled interruptions to normal operations.
These can crop up at any time and often when you least expect them: they can be something as major as a natural disaster or as mundane as a lack of heating in winter, but the net result is the same. Work is interrupted, business grinds to a halt, and losses start to mount.
Answering Difficult Questions
Continuity in UOTG’s 4C technology management approach explores how to best protect your organization from such risks.
The analysis we perform will help you answer the following questions: how prepared are you for unscheduled downtime? Are your IT systems sufficiently protected to cope with interruptions? Or do you deal with interruptions reactively, lengthening their impact to the business and increasing their cost?
We’ll work with you to construct a reliable system for protecting data against potential loss. Any such plan must incorporate the following features:
To better understand the right type of continuity solution for your business, your United Office Technologies Group team will look at the criticality of your data in terms of how long your business can function without the data, and how recent the data copy needs to be.
We’ll also see how what kind of access your people need to the application, communication and collaboration tools they depend on to keep the business running.
We’ll review a number of different possible situations, with the help of legal or compliance experts regarding the relevant obligations around data storage.
