When the chips are down, you need WAR

When the chips are down, you need WAR

Work area recovery (WAR) is your haven when everything goes wrong. You need an expert provider. Fortunately, WAR is one of the things ContinuitySA do really well.

By Steven King, Business Development Manager at ContinuitySA

Every well thought out business continuity plan needs to provide for WAR when normal business premises are unusable or unreachable. But all service providers aren’t equal—and a disaster is the one time you want to have a provider at your side you can trust.

There are a number of reasons why we are so very good at this particular aspect of business continuity:

Years of experience.  After more than 25 years, we have seen most of it. More important still, we have been careful to feed everything we have learned back into our own training and WAR processes. We also know what you will be going through when undergoing a test or a real invocation, so we are well placed to help.

Many different clients. Over the years, we have worked closely with clients across virtually every industry sector, and of every size. We understand what your organisation will need if it has to go to WAR.

Flexibility. Experience has refined our processes, making them robust. But it has also taught us that the unexpected and unplanned is always a possibility—our processes also have flexibility built into their DNA.

But it doesn’t end there. We are also flexible when it comes to technology. We know that it’s not enough to have the best, most reliable technology—our WAR technology can accommodate the latest technology.

Multiple sites. Remember what we said about the unexpected? Multiple sites mean that if one of ours goes down, or many clients need WAR at the same time, we are able to make a plan. Our recovery sites are situated around the continent in Gauteng (Midrand and Randburg), Western Cape (Tyger Valley and Somerset West), Botswana, Kenya, Mauritius and Mozambique.

Testing junkies. In WAR, as in business continuity as a whole, it’s only valuable if it works on the day. We test all the time, and encourage our clients to do the same. Practice makes perfect!
