DSC-IT Releases New Report on Importance of SMB Disaster Recovery Planning

Often overlooked among SMBs, a lack of effective disaster recovery planning can become tremendously costly in an instant, DSC-IT reports

DSC-IT, a leading consultant and fixed-price Managed IT Services provider in Perth, published a new report on IT-related disaster planning. With nearly three-quarters of small and medium businesses in a recent survey lacking substantially in preparedness for disasters, creating effective strategies for responding to natural, technological, or human-engendered threats must be a top priority. The new DSC-IT report introduces the major issues that confront decision-makers in the SMB sphere and details how to get started with addressing them. The report is available now at www.dsc-it.com.au.

"With so many everyday activities to oversee, it's understandable that SMB leaders so frequently overlook the need to prepare for disasters," DSC-IT Managing Director Mark O'Malley said, "Unfortunately, even the least bit of negligence of this kind can prove to be extremely costly. Even the smallest companies often suffer thousands of dollars in damage for every hour during which the effects of a disaster remain unaddressed, and the toll climbs quickly with increasing scale. Our new report on IT disaster planning will therefore make for some rewarding reading to anyone who needs to come up to speed with the importance of strategic, effective disaster recovery planning."

With companies of all kinds depending extensively on IT resources today, means of providing for improved regular reliability and recovery from routine problems have become a given in the world of business. While few business leaders would condone operating without effective IT data backup measures or anti-virus systems in place, not many smaller and medium-scale companies have detailed plans for how to respond to disasters that could impact their IT assets and services to an even greater degree.

As the new DSC-IT report on disaster recovery planning points out, in fact, 73% of respondents to the most recent IT Disaster Recovery Preparedness Council survey fell clearly short of this standard. With other studies conducted last year finding that medium-sized companies can suffer losses as high $74,000 per hour in the wake of disasters, being able to recovery quickly and effectively should be a top priority.

As one of the IT Consultants in Perth that companies depend upon most confidently and consistently for their mission-critical information technology needs, DSC-IT regularly helps clients develop reliable, comprehensive disaster recovery plans. The new report is available now at the DSC-IT website, where visitors will also find detailed information about the company's full range of fixed-price managed IT, consulting, and other services.
