The Power system is the BACKBONE of your organization. INFORMATION is your corporations most valuable asset.  When systems are unavailable, data is lost,
it negatively affects (and potentially halts) all desired business outcomes.
Part of an effective Information Technology (IT) strategy is your ability to demonstrate a proven level of DR readiness.    Disaster Recovery is your last line of defense against severe business impact regardless of the circumstances.  Does your company have a comprehensive DR Solution that would allow your business to function in the event of a disaster?  Can you demonstrate repeatable and timely recovery of your business?  Will the DR Plan work as written, or does it require super HUMAN IT intervention? 
Learn from this Panel of Experts to dispel the myths, assumptions, discuss the realities, from actual experience in supporting disasters. Don’t just recover your business, make it Available to your Business.
