Most businesses don’t have $165,000 sitting around to hire the right person with the right set of skills and expertise to design and manage a disaster recovery plan, which is the going rate according to Salary.com. And, typically the existing IT staff doesn’t have the time required to manage the solution and handle the failover testing. This does not mean that you should not drop the idea of implementing a disaster recovery solution to protect your organization’s data and systems.
To save time and money, many businesses are turning to outsourced service providers who specialize in disaster recovery as a cost-effective alternative to training and maintaining a salaried disaster recovery expert in-house. These IT professionals are highly qualified in disaster recovery planning and data recovery, which can save your business both time and money. And, you can tailor your disaster recovery services to fit your IT budget and recovery time objectives.
Armed with these eight reasons, it will be easy to persuade any executive that investing in a disaster recovery plan is a smart decision to ensure the continuity of the business.
