Progent's business continuity experts can work closely with your management and IT support staff to:

  • Perform risk and business impact analysis and identify dependencies
  • Identify human and physical resources of all types necessary to keep your business in operation
  • Determine and prioritize business-critical IT functions and specify acceptable restoration times
  • Qualify colocation centers and hot backup sites
  • Verify secure remote access capability for key workers
  • Plan emergency notification systems and define responsibility assignments for personnel
  • Document a comprehensive recovery and test plan
  • Train management, technical staff, and other key people to carry out the disaster recovery/business continuity plan
Project Management Methodology
While carrying out major IT projects for enterprise clients, Progent follows the Microsoft Solutions Framework (MSF) project methodology, a structured approach based on pre-defined milestones that help keep projects from spiraling out of control. MSF makes it easy for management to monitor a project's progress while ensuring that costs are contained and schedules are kept. For details about the best practices incorporated in MSF, refer to Progent's project management methodology.
