Burlington, MA (June 14th, 2006) - According to DAMICON, an information technology services company, business continuity planning can be much simpler than it looks. Many companies put off continuity planning because they view it as a complex and expensive task. DAMICON offers a way to make the job simple and inexpensive.
Vin D'Amico, President of DAMICON, explains. "Business continuity really needs to focus on mission-critical functions, not the entire corporate environment. It should also give priority to the most likely disaster events and down play the unlikely such as a tsunami."
It's much easier to plan for disruption to a single system or department rather than the total destruction of all corporate assets. By breaking up the continuity plan into manageable chunks, a company can gradually create the required documentation and conduct appropriate training.
Vin adds "The approach we advocate is that companies should include business continuity planning in new initiatives. For example, replacing a computer system or opening a new sales office, is a good time to address business continuity issues specific to that initiative."
DAMICON offers an agile "Business Continuity Program" that helps companies prepare business continuity and disaster response plans targeted at specific areas. These plans are designed to integrate and evolve into an enterprise-wide continuity plan over time.
"Disasters are things you can't control, but agile planning is all about things you can control," says D'Amico.
DAMICON helps companies respond and adapt to changing business conditions. Agile Business Continuity Plans and Security Policies enable DAMICON clients to avoid common problems and rapidly respond to the unexpected. Agile Requirements Specifications, White Papers and Case Studies enable DAMICON clients to seize new business opportunities. DAMICON services firms worldwide.
Vin D'Amico is President and Chief Agility Officer of DAMICON. He writes the Virtual Business column in the IndUS Business Journal.
