SteelEye Technology 2006 Business Continuity Index Survey Results

  Industry Statistics published in DM Direct Special Report
July 25, 2006 Issue
 
  By DM Review Editorial Staff

Answered by 184 C-level executives and IT technicians with active roles in their organizations' business continuity strategies, the annual SteelEye Technology Business Continuity Index examines adoption levels of various server technologies, delves into priorities and costs for implementing business continuity (BC) initiatives and provides a view into common BC practices.

The SteelEye Business Continuity Index confirms that BC planning is a critical function within IT organizations of all size and indicates that BC plans can be implemented and maintained for under $250,000 U.S. per year in most cases. The protection of customer-focused and communications-oriented services is ranked as most important among corporate functions with recovery in less than four hours seen as vital to their business by one-third of respondents.

Companies point to planned maintenance activities accounting for the largest reasons of application downtime indicating that a solution which can protect against both planned and unplanned outages is ideal.

This is the first annual survey focusing on business continuity planning and implementations among a worldwide sampling of IT organizations. Future surveys will gather data for historical comparison as well as expanding include questions on the use of emerging technologies such as server virtualization.
