Are You “DR Ready?”
HDPlus IT support software offers an integrated, automated, easy to use tool that will guide business managers through an IT disaster recovery plan organized to create a complete Disaster Recovery and/or Business Continuity Plan.
The HDPlus BRMGR (Business Recovery Manager) module is facilitated by an automated wizard built into the system. When the design process is completed your organization will have a fully documented plan including task ownership, staff dispatching, all properly sequenced, resulting in a viable business recovery plan and/or business continuity strategy.
BRMGR is a combined planning and implementation tool providing ultimate flexibility and protection for the entire company. While not all businesses will need the full capability of BR planning, most require some level of risk mitigation; BRMGR provides this level of protection for a single application, a complete department, or the entire company!
BRMGR is a tool designed to reduce risk and to help the business be prepared for the potential of a devastating disaster which could result in a costly outage or significant financial damage to your company.
Interesting facts to consider:
- “Forty percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster and another 25 percent fail within one year according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Similar statistics from the United States Small Business Administration indicate that over 90 percent of businesses fail within two years after being struck by a disaster.” (http://www.sba.gov/content/disaster-planning)
- “According to the Institute for Business and Home Safety, an estimated 25 percent of businesses do not reopen following a major disaster. You can protect your business by identifying the risks associated with natural and man-made disasters, and by creating a plan for action should a disaster strike (http://www.chamber101.com/2programs_committee/natural_disasters/disasterpreparedness/Forty.htm
The HDPlus dashboard is a critical component of the BRMGR. Communication and alerting are paramount to surviving a devastating disaster. The execution and communications during such an event are important processes that help maintain clear objectives for your business. Moreover, knowing how “BR Ready” the company is at all times, especially under Sarbanes-Oxley guidelines, is not only advised but may be a legal requirement.
