The financial crisis has seen topics like risk management and business continuity gain higher priority in the list of IT worries.
According to a recent UK survey among business managers, IT and telecoms failure remains the top cause of business disaster and a real threat to their organisations.
It is estimated that 75% of risk managers see unplanned downtime of IT systems lasting 24 hours or more threatening the very survival of their entire business.
In order to successfully prevent or at least reduce downtime organisations have to deploy systems that go beyond detecting events.
A new analyst paper on ‘Closed Loop Notification Software’ by Lustratus shows that a new breed of software called notification workflow software is addressing fast, efficient and fully automated event notification.
With such products in place, risk managers will need to worry less about threats to their business survival due to IT system failures. There are enough jeopardizing events in today’s business world happening.
