What We Do.

The right game plan can mean the difference between success & failure, especially when it comes to technology.

Our approach to IT strategy always combines top-down, bottom-up approaches to ensure all technology initiatives are aligned with wider business goals.

IT Continuity Planning

A scary reality of business today is that we’ve become so reliant on technology that if IT grinds to a halt, so does business. And while most organisations have some level of backup system in place, many aren’t actually prepared for how to handle all situations and how their business will continue operating.

An up to date, fully tested Business Continuity Plan is no longer a nice to have. It’s a must have for any resilient modern business.

More than just backup & DR

Critical information and systems are vulnerable to failure or loss at any moment; whether you’re faced with an accidental file deletion, system failure, security breach, man-made or natural disaster. So while backup and disaster recovery are certainly critical pieces of the puzzle in a crisis, a true Business Continuity Plan goes much deeper across scenarios including people, systems and processes.

5 STEPS TO TRUE BUSINESS RESILIENCY

Our BCP experts take a broad approach to planning, ensuring as many as possible scenarios are catered for to ensure your business continues to operate in the face of any crisis.
 

  • STEP 1
    Discovery: An independent audit is carried out across your business systems, people and processes to identify strengths and weaknesses of current state, and recommend improvement opportunities.
     
  • STEP 2
    Needs Analysis: Via collaboration with key stakeholders from across your business, our experts gather requirements of your business including priorities, recovery time and point objectives, tolerance for downtime across all business units and systems, as well as training and change management requirements.
     
  • STEP 3
    Design & Implementation: Based on the findings of the discovery and needs analysis, a complete Business Continuity Plan is designed and implemented to address a multitude of scenarios.
     
  • STEP 4
    Testing & Acceptance: Rigorous testing and staff buy-in to plans is key to ensuring when a crisis hits, the plan fits the requirements and that it will be followed even in pressured circumstances.
     
  • STEP 5
    Maintenance: BCP certainly isn’t a set-and-forget job. As your business evolves, so must your plan. Continual revision, testing and upkeep are key to a future-proof plan.
