Business continuity planning

Business continuity planning requires strategies for network diversity.

Business continuity planning is a critical component of enterprise competitiveness. During an outage—whether due to natural disaster, hardware failure or software malfunction—businesses cannot continue to function as usual, much less keep pace with competitors.

Most enterprises have experienced an IT or technology outage at some point in the past five years, according to a 2016 study by Forrester. Yet more than half of companies in the study were unprepared for outages caused by field software and firmware upgrades, natural disasters or fiber cuts.

One essential ingredient of business continuity planning is network diversity, and enterprise cloud services have much to offer in this area. By providing resiliency and network redundancy, cloud services and hosted services can play an important role in business continuity and disaster recovery planning.

When choosing partners to provide greater network diversity for business continuity planning, a growing number of America’s largest businesses are turning to Spectrum Enterprise.
