In the always-on world of technology, business continuity has become important for the success of critical applications and companies involved in quiet a few sectors, be it healthcare, finance, telecommunications or otherwise. As we look into the future, business continuity, or a company’s ability to plan for, mitigate or even avoid disasters and their associated operational disruptions, will only grow in importance as data and application access becomes increasingly critical, and businesses meet unprecedented exposure to such disrupting events.
Events that pose a threat to continuity can range from weather-related disasters and outages to more reputational incidents such as hacking issues or lawsuits. Still, all can pose critical setbacks if they take down business functions. As more data is being passed around in the age of IoT and 5G, and more day-to-day capabilities are being created and utilized in the online sphere, the threat of digital disruption grows larger.
Due to this complicated enterprise environment where organizations encounter vast competition, financial pressures, shrinking margins, decreased headcount, and trouble finding qualified personnel, it is often a challenge to continue to operate efficiently and provide top-notch service/merchandise to customers.
