In the final of our three part series into Understanding Connectivity, we take a look at the importance of business continuity in the context of your telecommunication solutions.
In part one, we defined connectivity and what it’s come to mean (recap here). In part two, we examined the security implications of a growing reliance on internet-based communication technologies - catch up here.
This week, we want to conclude our series by talking about how to protect your business communications, should you be hit by a crisis situation.
You’ll be familiar with the concept of business continuity - how to maintain or return to business as usual when disaster strikes.
Let's face it, hardware breakdowns, supplier failures and even power cuts happen but when they do, they can have a significant impact on your business.
As we’ve discovered, internet-based technologies are gaining popularity for business telecoms, owing to their flexibility, scalability and cost efficiency. While these benefits are clear, this increasingly online reliance means that being offline for any period of time could greatly impact your communication and service delivery, potentially incurring serious financial penalties, data loss and reputational damage for your business.
While a crisis situation can rarely be prevented, you can mitigate the impact with these key strategies.
Having these in place will help keep your business communications resilient, available and recoverable, in the event of any outage.
