(Chicago,IL) March 26, 2010 Dennis A Pearson CEO of Pearson IT discusses disaster recovery planning

Disaster recovery planning is a component of an agency’s business continuity planning.

Online PR News – 27-March-2010 – – With the increasing importance of information technology for the continuation of business critical functions, combined with a transition to an around-the-clock economy, the importance of protecting an organization's data and IT infrastructure in the event of a disruptive situation has become an increasing and more visible business priority in recent years.

"The ability to recover information systems quickly after the terrorist attacks of 9/11 proved the value of disaster recovery," said Dennis Pearson CEO of Pearson IT. "Many companies that had programs in place were up and running within a few days in new locations. Companies that did not have disaster recovery systems had the most difficulty recreating their information infrastructure." he added.

The complexity of technology systems requires detailed planning and testing to ensure recovery capabilities in the case of a disaster. Remember, disaster recovery programs are enacted at times of great chaos when workers are often concerned about the safety of their own families as well as saving the business. That brings a lot more into play than making sure servers can fail over and fail back.
