Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity are all the more challenging in a tough economy. Budgets are shrinking and every inch of revenue progress must be preserved. That’s why companies are seeking more help in controlling costs and in targeting the services they choose for managing and implementation their disaster recovery and business continuity plans.
Some great sources of free help are…
- The American Red Cross – The American Red Cross exists to provide compassionate care to those in need. Our network of generous donors, volunteers and employees share a mission of preventing and relieving suffering, here at home and around the world, through five key service areas
- FEMA – Federal Emergency Management Agency
- NVOAD – National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster – nonprofit, nonpartisan, membership based organization that serves as the forum where organizations share knowledge and resources throughout the disaster cycle—preparation, response and recovery —to help disaster survivors and their communities.
The number of for-profit vendors serving companies and organizations with disaster recovery (IT and Data recovery) and business continuity (recovery of operations) is huge with companies ranging from local to world wide. Some providers offer very narrow services like planning software and others offer many solutions. So, it is a great challenge to know all the vendors, their expertise and capabilities in order to make a wise decision.
That challenge prompted us to become a solution capable of gluing together the best and most fitting solutions. It’s a challenge we enjoy!
