The logistics of all the various recovery efforts, at all the impacted sites, with all of the different teams, attempting to deal with all the different interdependencies ATOD (At Time of Disaster) can be overwhelming. Consider the simplest possible disaster scenario…a single site outage. 5 to 10 corporate recovery teams…legal, purchasing, HR, security, salvage, and a few others. Add 5 to 10 more IT recovery teams…storage, network, applications, platform services, communications and a couple more. Then, the operating department teams…what 10? Maybe 15? Now…each team has a leader, an alternate leader and a few members…say a total of 150 to 200 people making critical decisions of what to do, when to it and where to do it all from? Pretty scary!
And even this simple disaster scenario has its interdependencies. Which processes depend on each other? When does the delay of one process’ output interrupt the department that uses that output as its input? What about those 20+ laptops that were left on the desktops when everyone evacuated…how are you going to replace them? Or how about the corrupted data on that high-availability application that was never supposed to go down? The one thing you can count on ATOD is surprises!
You have two choices…all those team leaders working diligently trying to interpret their dozens upon dozens of database reports to decide what to do…or, a revolutionary command console to orchestrate your entire recovery effort from a single PC! Dynamically model cross-process dependencies to determine the ripple-effect of the event-specific impact. “Calculate” your recovery plan to address the specific loss profile for the specific event, given its specific damage and impact, relative to the event’s specific timing…all dynamically in real time! Adjust your recovery plan on-the-fly to account for available tools and resources. Keep second-by-second track of who has done what and what will be done next.
Imagine if your disaster isn’t the simplest scenario possible?
