The Best Way to Prepare for the Worst

You know what they say about the best-laid plans of mice and men ... It’s even more true when it comes to the technology that supports your business--especially in our digital economy--so you have to be ready for the worst. In this think-tank meeting, attendees will hear first-hand about an IT professional’s real-life disaster--and how the systems that were (and were not) in place affected the outcome. Attendees will work together to identify how products, people, processes, training and planning must align for a company to be truly prepared; discuss the risk vs. reward of hosting systems and data offsite; and develop a checklist for evaluating data center facilities and service-level agreements to help ensure that the unthinkable won't happen and to smooth transitions if it does.

Participant created final content:

Whitepaper: Data center disaster prevention and recovery plan

Participating Companies: IBM, Oracle, Coyote Logistics, State of Michican, Canara Inc. and others.
