Disaster Recovery ConsultingIn the post 911 world, regulators, auditors, customers and prospects of larger enterprises are demanding to see a tested business continuity plan. CIOs who are unable to produce one can hurt their company's ability to compete. Progent offers high-level online consulting for business continuity planning to help you prepare for disasters, reduce downtime for your most critical IT operations, and comply with examiners' letters and agency requirements.

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, "business continuity planning" and "disaster recovery planning" are distinct but overlapping disciplines. Business continuity planning takes an all-encompassing view of a business to determine what personnel, physical resources, and processes are needed to sustain business operations at a minimally acceptable level after a catastrophe and how to restore normal operations promptly. Business continuity planning requires a broad perspective and obviously accounts for IT issues, which are crucial for all businesses, but also looks at areas outside computing. Will your business require temporary office space? Substitute vehicles? Alternate vendors? Replacement staff? Do you have a tested emergency notification system in place to alert workers and other stakeholders? Are you mandated submit regulatory reports or contact your insurers? Do you need access to emergency funding? Progent can provide the services of senior consultants who can help you follow leading practices to create and document a business continuity plan that deals with these vital issues and provides a cohesive game plan to follow in case of a disaster.

Continuity planning services available from Progent include:

  • Perform risk and business impact analysis
  • Identify dependencies
  • Identify key human and physical resources
  • Prioritize business-critical IT functions
  • Qualify colocation centers and hot backup sites
  • Verify remote access capability for key workers
  • Plan and test an emergency notification system

  • Train management, technical staff, and other key people

    Progent's pricing policy is to bill for phone support and in-person visits per minute. As a result, you pay just for received services. Progent does not impose a higher rate for after-hours or emergency service, and within California or in areas where Progent offers in-person service, Progent does not charge for travel time except for emergency support where on-site time is less than 4 hours. Also, Progent applies no service activation charge and requires no retainer for services provided during normal business hours. Many service firms demand large minimum payments or charge for each quarter hour or longer. Progent's small granularity does away with large bills for quick repairs so you will not be tempted to permit less critical problems to stay unaddressed.
