This eBook outlines the steps you need to take to transform your Disaster Recovery plan and get it back on track.
According to FEMA, more than 40% of businesses never reopen after a disaster, and for those that do, only 29% were still operating after two years. And what becomes of businesses that lose their information technology for nine days or more after a disaster?
Bankruptcy within a year.
It’s even more complicated these days as companies demand that their IT teams adapt new technology and accelerate their adaptation to a digital world.
IT teams are in constant motion as they modernize and migrate an increasingly complex IT environment. And that means making changes could make their IT vulnerable to outages and disruptions.
Of course, most organizations have a disaster recovery plan of some kind. The problem is that once the plan is created, it’s often placed in binders and set on a shelf.
So how do you keep up to date and actionable disaster recovery (DR) plans in place?
You should have an active and ongoing process to keep both plans and new technologies are updated on a regular basis. We recently put together this eBook. Written by TDS Senior Project Manager, Brian McGinty, it highlights essential steps you can take to prepare for any change – whether planned, like a migration or a tech refresh – or, (gulp!) unplanned, like an expected disaster.
From lost or accidentally deleted files to ransomware, natural disasters and even internal threat factors, there are many things that can happen to your applications –which can in turn cripple your day-to-day operations.

It’s not always possible to predict how and when a disaster will strike, however, there are steps CIOs can take to sustain business growth and ensure key IT initiatives don’t stop in their tracks. We are happy to share some of that guidance with the wider IT community.
Recently, TDS CTO and Product Manager both delivered an AWS Migrations Unplugged session to address challenges faced when scheduling migration waves, and offer some solutions that help organizations accelerate and de-risk each step in their journey to the cloud.
Here are some of the blogs and stories we shared this year which recognize the challenges we’ve all been faced with – and celebrate those who were prepared and are thriving.
