Business Continuity Management is one of the most critical strategic elements a business needs to focus on to ensure continuity. Over the years, and before CoVID19, many organisations paid lip service to the entrenchment and support of effective Business Continuity processes. Without a well-defined plan and procedures (processes), companies stand exposed when a significant disaster strikes, which could destroy the business overnight. Although IT, like many other divisions within the organisation, needs to build in redundancy capability to align with the policy statements provided by the Board, many business executives believe that BCM = Disaster Recovery = IT. This mindset could not have been further from reality.
We offer an infrastructure monitoring solution known as N-Able. This product continuously monitors defined elements of the Infrastructure to ensure the continuation of business services in line with business expectations.
Suppose an organisation embraces service management as dictated. In that case, all redundancy requirements in support of BCM should have been effectively factored into all solutions developed and deployed.
