IT Disaster Recovery and Continuity

Identifying the ‘true’ potential cost of IT service loss
The true cost of a prolonged IT service failure can manifest in a number of ways. In particular, damage to reputation can have major implications for future research funding, student recruitment and community relationships.

Understanding the dependencies on IT services
There is frequently no comprehensive view of how multiple user groups use IT across the institution, or the relative priority of IT services themselves.

Inconsistent approaches to disaster recovery
Departmental IT managers frequently develop ‘point solutions’ for local disaster recovery needs. This can result in duplication of effort and expenditure, with an inefficient and ineffective disaster recovery strategy.

How Can Jermyn Consulting Help?
Jermyn Consulting has extensive experience in the sector, developing IT disaster recovery services that are tailored to its particular needs. With finite resources available for IT disaster recovery, Jermyn ensures that
