Most organizations have deployed disaster recovery technology (most notably, for backup and recovery of data). Many of these have a formal disaster recovery plan, outlining what needs to be done to prepare for and recover from various types of disasters. But fewer enterprises have thought out a comprehensive, risk-based disaster recovery plan and processes upon which recovery technology is acquired, disaster teams staffed, and recovery processes based. The result is that the recovery technologies and processes in place do not actually meet the business disaster recovery requirements, or (just as bad) exceed these requirements, at an excessive cost. Management then complains that they do not understand the business case for disaster recovery.
Action Item: Planning a disaster recovery capability and processes helps to avoid that pitfall.
