Technology Emergency Plan (Contingency)
A computer emergency plan is no luxury nowadays. Computer systems are increasingly complex and more external resources are involved in the maintenance of computer systems. Therefore, it is important to bring together all the resources to provide management with a clear picture of potential risks of breakdown, anticipated duration of interruptions, and incidental costs.
We can evaluate precisely the strengths and weaknesses of your technological infrastructure and point out in detail the actions to undertake if identified critical situations were to occur. Based on the development of an emergency plan, we can also make recommendations to overcome the weaknesses of your IT infrastructure.
Organizations can no longer afford to interrupt their operations during several hours. Costs have become too significant, not to mention impacts on corporate image and delays in production. To address this issue, we supply contingency solutions for every need and budget.
- The first level of protection is redundancy. The purpose is to double the elements most likely to fail.
- The second level of protection consists of an emergency disaster recovery (DR) plan. It involves scenarios such as major breakdowns and disasters. Within a context of emergency recovery, the maximum time needed to recover access (even if corrupted) to IT services and critical organizational data has to be determined.
- The third level of protection is a high availability (HA) plan. Similarly, it involves scenarios such as major breakdowns and disasters within, however, a context of high availability. We make sure that access to IT services and critical data is recovered instantaneously.
Xelys can help your organization determine the right level of protection to suit your needs and, as a second step, integrate an infrastructure that meets your contingency needs.
As a result, a proactive rather than a reactive operations emergency plan means savings for organizations and reduced financial, production and customer service losses.
