Client case study

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) was faced with that harsh reality when a 5.8- magnitude earthquake struck in 2016. Since the company’s backup center was located near headquarters in Ulsan City, Korea, the earthquake served as a wake-up call for HHI to examine its disaster recovery systems and determine preparedness for a full range of potential disruption.

HHI chose to partner with IBM Business Resiliency Services for strategic disaster recovery operations based on the extensive experience that IBM has in regional and global disaster recovery.
