A: Not necessarily. Back-up equipment, security, continuity seating, personnel, a separate facility, power generators, redundancy and the technology needed to keep a company running in the event of a disaster is an enormous financial burden. DataChambers offers companies a very cost-effective way to insure that they can continue to serve their customers in the event of disaster.
A: No, it’s not fear that’s driven the creation of DataChambers, but sheer common sense. Companies have realized that they can no longer stomach the enormous cost of business failures. In just 2002 alone, $106 billion in revenue was lost due to business failures. This just includes the business that was lost, it does not include the loss of facilities or tangible resources. Of the companies that experience failures, 94 percent go out of business within two years after the disaster. We know that the six percent that survive made it because they had some kind of business continuity plan in place.
There is also another reason for the creation of the business continuity industry. Because of the inter-dependency of technology, it’s no longer just the huge, multi-million dollar corporations that are invested in complex data systems. Today, even small and medium-sized companies now have a sizable technological component that drives their investments and ways of doing business. Every company has an obligation to protect these resources.
