Business reliance on ICT and digital services is rapidly increasing, while tolerance for downtime is simultaneously decreasing. But how can ICT and digital teams balance desired recovery objectives with realistic recovery capabilities?
The consequences of a disruption to your ICT and digital services can be reduced to an acceptable level. The key is to proactively manage known risks and put in place preventive controls.
Whether you call it a ‘disaster recovery plan’ or an ‘ICT service continuity and recovery plan’, Frame helps you to develop the strategy and plan so that, if the worst occurs, you’re prepared.
What you can expect
Practices and procedures which can be quickly accessed and easily used to deal with disruptions to ICT services.
A thorough appreciation of an organisation’s reliance on technology and what’s required to prosper in today’s environment
A one-size-fits-all approach to recovery and continuity planning is neither realistic nor cost effective. Different systems have different criticalities, and require different strategies.
Frame specialises in assisting ICT and digital teams in communicating effectively with their business peers, and understanding the real continuity and recovery requirements.
We assist you to define the levels of criticality and design solutions for each level. Using this approach, Frame ensures your organisation doesn’t overspend on unneeded capabilities, yet is adequately protected from disruption.
The approach ensures you’re able to meet your customers’ expectations regarding delivery of ICT and digital services, by assisting your organisation to:
- minimise the duration of a serious disruption to business
- facilitate effective decision-making during a disaster or emergency
- enact effective coordination of continuity and recovery tasks
- reduce the complexity of the recovery effort
- maximise the reliability of any business continuity facility
- ensure an orderly resumption of normal business operations, within an acceptable timeframe
- set a standard for testing and reviewing the plan.
A streamlined process for disaster recovery planning, providing maximum assistance for your staff, with least interruption
To start, we perform risk evaluation and business impact analysis focused on your ICT and digital infrastructure and applications, then develop practical, cost-effective strategic options, tailored to the needs of your business and customers.
Once the strategy’s in place, we can help you implement the plan.
Our modular framework gives you step-by-step guidance to make sure your plan is pragmatic, achievable and maintainable.
It means that your people, who have the skills necessary to contribute to the plan, get the maximum assistance with the least interruption to their normal duties.
We provide your staff with the tools necessary to get the best possible result:
- a set of document templates, with guidleines for creating plans that are easy to follow and are written in plain English
- facilitation of the process
- training and transfer of the skills needed.
And, once developed, Frame can guide you with the essentials required to maintain the plan so it continues to provide the support you expect of it.
