An IDC analysis shows organisations stand to lose a lot from poor data protection and recovery operations. The losses are estimated to be as much as an average of $ 1.39million per organisation, per year! The organisations in question employed 8,000 people on average. Whilst your own organisation may be smaller or bigger, the correlation holds true, downtime = real financial losses.
This finding is not a surprise, research has consistently shown the downtime is expensive. This being the case you would expect that most organisations would choose to be more vigilant in having better protection and availability. Surprisingly it remains the case that many companies do not take the most expedient steps to protect their data or build recovery plans that make use of the most up to date technology.
The problem is that data protection is not valued in the same way as data analytics. Company executives can draw a line between revenue and data analysis technologies. They need to connect the dots between downtime and losses. It could be argued that not doing so, it is a gross mismanagement of funds which in the very worst cases can end in a companies demise.
