Business Continuity Plan

Improve your business continuity plan with cloud services.

While business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) has become an absolute requirement for virtually every organization, developing an effective business continuity plan remains a challenge.

Faced with a barrage of competing priorities, IT teams often view a business continuity plan as a task to be accomplished and then set aside while moving on to other challenges. But because IT environments are increasingly complex and evolving at an accelerating pace, a business continuity plan is much more of a process to be managed than a task to be completed. Failure to provide regular updates and extensions to support ever-changing business environments will quickly make a business continuity plan obsolete.

That’s where cloud services can help. Cloud services provide a natural complement to business continuity management by moving mission-critical infrastructure to off-site facilities where it can be protected by state-of-the-art security and managed more cost-efficiently. But managed cloud services can also provide the regular monitoring, maintenance and management that enables a business continuity plan to be effective in the event of a disaster.

For organizations seeking superior cloud services to support a successful business continuity plan, Navisite provides a wide range of solutions.
