¹Available from http://bit.ly/NWmH2j Having systems unavailable and people unproductive for days or hours can be disas- trous in terms of lost revenue and customer dissatisfaction. In today's 24 × 7 × 365 workplace, you can't afford to be without the technology and information needed to run your agency. And it's not just floods, fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes that can cripple your systems---it's the more common events like hard- ware failures, bad backups, virus- es, and power outages that can impact an agency at any time. The increasing number of physical disasters and security concerns has forced agencies to place a high priority on Business Continuity (BC) and Disaster Recovery (DR). According to a Q3 2012 Forrester Research survey, 61% of IT Executives report[ed] that purchas- ing or upgrading BC and DR capa- bilities was a top priority. ¹ PCMG is here to help you plan for the unplanned Restoring system files. Please wait... 81% complete There is no tolerance for downtime in today's environment. Think about the impact on productivity and customer communications when something as simple as email goes down. Now, consider when critical business applications are disrupt- ed and the financial impact it could have if you're unable to process sales orders or service customers. Recovery strategies should be developed for systems, applica- tions and data -- including net- works, servers, desktops, laptops, and mobile devices. IT systems require hardware, software and connectivity. Without one com- ponent, the system may not run. Recovery strategies should be developed to anticipate the loss of one or more of the following: • Computer room environment (secure computer room with cli- mate control, conditioned and backup power supply, etc.) • Hardware (networks, servers, desktop and laptop computers, wireless devices and peripherals) • Connectivity to service provider (fiber, cable, wireless, etc.) • Software applications (Email, EDI, office productivity, etc.) • Data and restoration Some public sector applications cannot tolerate any downtime at all. They utilize dual data centers capable of handling all data pro- cessing needs, which run in parallel with data mirrored or synchronized between the two centers. This is a very expensive and complex solu- tion that only larger agencies can afford. However, there are other solutions available for agencies with critical business applications and data to protect. The public sector demands for higher levels of IT availability will continue to increase. It's not a question of "if" but "how" IT oper- ations will achieve these demands while still remaining cost effective. PCMG offers products and solu- tions that can help you to get back up and running when a disaster strikes. From backup software to power and cooling and more, we've got you covered. of IT Executives report that purchasing or upgrading Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery capabilities is a top priority. 61%
