What is Business Continuity
Business Continuity is the preparation for, response to, and recovery from an application outage that adversely affects business operations Business Continuity Solutions addresses systems unavailability, degraded application performance, or unacceptable recovery strategies

Business Continuity remains at the top of every executive’s priority list. Yet executives find themselves in a financial tug-of-war between business continuity solutions and other projects, competing for limited resources. Fundamental to business continuity is the need to understand an organization’s practices relative to the protection, availability, and usability of data.

Why Business Continuity
Lost Productivity • Number of employees impacted * hours out * hourly rate
Know the downtime costs per hour, day, two days...

Lost Revenue • • • • • Direct loss Compensatory payments Lost future revenue Billing losses Investment losses

Damaged Reputation • Customers • Suppliers • Financial markets • Banks • Business partners

Financial Performance • Revenue recognition • Cash flow • Lost discounts (A/P) • Payment guarantees • Credit rating • Stock price

Other Expenses Temporary employees, equipment rental, overtime costs, extra shipping costs, travel expenses...

There are many factors that need to be considered when calculating the cost of downtime. A formula to calculate the costs of the outage should capture both the cost of lost productivity of employees and the cost of lost income from missed sales. The Estimated average cost of 1 hour of downtime = (Employee costs per hour) *( Number of employees affected by outage) + (Average Income per hour). Employee costs per hour is simply the total salaries and benefits of all employees per week, divided by the average number of working hours per week. Average income per hour is just the total income of an institution per week, divided by average number of hours per week that an institution is open for business.

Business Continuity – Obstacles of Availability
Disaster (<1% of Occurrences) Natural or man made
Flood, fire, earthquake Contaminated building

Unplanned Occurrences (13% of Occurrences) Failure
Database corruption Component failure Human error

Planned Occurrences (87% of Occurrences) Competing workloads
Backup, reporting Data warehouse extracts Application and data restore

Elevated demand for increased application availability confirms the need to ensure business continuity practices are consistent with business needs. Interruptions are classified as either planned or unplanned. Failure to address these specific outage categories seriously compromises a company’s ability to meet business goals.
