The best recovery plans are built on up-to-date technology

In our business we must always improve. That means keeping IT infrastructure up to date. Outdated and unreliable underlying technologies are unlikely to be compatible with the concept of IT readiness. Older systems may be more vulnerable (to malware attacks, for example), less resilient (surviving a power surge, for instance) – and they may make it a bigger challenge to recover systems in the event of a disaster.

Up to the minute IT infrastructure that’s compatible with the latest compliance patches and operating systems will make it easier to bring new systems on line in the event of a disaster recovery scenario.

Recovery plans in a crisis - simplicity rules

An overly complex recovery plan can be a real problem when the moment comes to use it. In times of real crisis, plans need to be crisp, familiar and actionable and teams must be trained to act swiftly and enable the plan. It’s been proven that too many tables, look-ups and references won’t work.

The best disaster recovery plan is one that can easily be used by knowledgeable people to guide them through a failover/recovery.

In SITA’s Command Centers, we challenge our readiness every six months with intense testing of our people, processes and tools. With clear guidelines, procedures and training, we are able to achieve success and constantly strive to improve.
