A resilient IT environment goes beyond having a disaster recovery plan. Here are 9 tips for improving your IT resiliency.
You can't predict when a disaster will strike or when your normal operations are disrupted, but there are steps you can take to disaster-proof your applications and not only ensure business continues but key IT initiatives don’t get stopped in their tracks.
We recently collaborated with a solutions architect at AWS on a blog to describe how TransitionManager provides the necessary insight to understand complex environments to help teams analyze, plan, understand, and reduce the risks associated with migrations.
When teams use a single platform they can take a holistic view of their project. Rather than using discrete tools to individually track spend, identify security vulnerabilities, and manage governance, an orchestration platform enables teams to assess and evaluate these areas - and more - in relation to each other. And this leads to better decision making, better planning, and improves the likelihood of delivering expected business outcomes.
