There are several key considerations for determining whether a do-it-yourself approach or a software-based approach is best when it comes to disaster recovery.
A modern planning approach is mandatory and successful solutions must avoid the hazards of past approaches. This checklist examines the following four critical considerations for determining which approach to disaster recovery is best for ensuring a company is prepared to meet today's evolving needs:
Is it easy enough for anyone to use?
Does data need to be accessible anytime, anywhere?
Can you accurately maintain plans?
Can you utilize in-line reporting?
Next generation planning demands more engagement, more responsiveness, higher confidence, and greater flexibility. The entire company, even non-technical stakeholders, must be engaged to find the vulnerabilities that matter, so that they can guide the next best action(s).
