Business Continuity Awareness Week 2018
This week, May 14-18, is Business Continuity Awareness Week!
This worldwide event, sponsored by the [Business Continuity Institute], promotes education and awareness designed to increase our understanding of business continuity, teach clients on ways to understand and manage IT and business risks, and introduce new techniques and technologies designed to minimize and even to eliminate business and personal disruption.
IBM is actively involved. Monday starts off with opening statements by Andrea Sayles, IBM General Manager of Resiliency Services, and Michael Puldy, IBM Director of Global Business Continuity Management.
The event offers a variety of online webinars, as well as a wealth of educational resources.
For example, on Wednesday May 16, at 6:00am EDT, my coworker Karpagam Venkataraman (KV), IBM Distinguished Engineer, Resiliency Orchestration Product Management, will present [Automating Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity in the Hybrid Cloud Environment]. You can [Register here] to participate.
It is an honor that IBM submitted my presentation [The Seven Tiers of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery] as a technical resource for this event. It was one of the sessions I held last week at the [IBM Systems Technical University in Orlando].
Business Continuity is not just for mainframes, it can apply also to data centers using VMware and Hyper-V virtualization. Eric Herzog, IBM Vice President of Product Marketing and Management for IBM Storage Systems, has a blog post titled [Easier availability, easier on your wallet with the IBM Spectrum Protect suite].
